Too clever in someways, there again I had a linux box with MySQL on it and I needed to FTP files off a windows box, that wasn't under my control and then import them into the database every five minutes.
Even as a complete noob in perl, linux and mysql it was barely two pages long. Never heard a peep out of it for the next fifteen months I was there.
An elegant solution to very messy problem.
It was full of comments as well.
