Is it too much to ask why you aren't using a "real" database? It doesn't even need to be some complicated extra process, just install DBD::Sqlite which is a self contained database in one file. All this icky stuff will be handled transparently for you =].

    That is certainly an interesting approach. I had discarded using a database earlier since I knew that it would require root access to install and configure (something I do not have on this particular server), but this option might actually get around that. I had not idea that a self contained database like this existed. That is very cool. Thanks for pointing me that way. Joe
