in reply to Data files included in a package

Flat files are OK for small jobs. Up the scale comes the DB_File and then a database. DB_File is a nice way or holding data you want to use from run to run. To find where your files are use File::Find Hope this helps

    File::Find isn't a realistic solution. Users probably won't accept the delay of searching the filesystem for the data file(s) each time the package is used.
