in thread blaise and perl

thanks again for the advice on unpack. unfortunately, I can't say I fully grok the documentation-- having a hard time figuring out how the templates described in pack would work in unpack. I can tell you that when I open the *.bdb file in emacs, I get lots of odd meta characters, with the data embedded within them. any guesses on what sorts of templates I should experiment with? thanks again,

    unpack produces a list of scalars corresponding to the template. I don't know how else to help you, since your description of the data is, well, "vague" would be an euphemism. :)

    Try looking at the file with hexdump, hexdump -c, strings and the various other tools for examining raw binary data.
