Author/Contact Info David M. Hagens -
Description: First off this is a menu script with simple options that include multiple scripts.

Uses Erriccssons Dump_Eric decrypter for cell traffic call records and I've developed a tool to search on the encrypted file names (a ksh and a CGI, posting ksh though)
You specify the date first - Then the time - By doing this the records you pick are thinned out allowing for faster processing of the call record files. It finds the call record files by using a simple pattern match.
From top to bottom here is the process.

Search tool - Specify date & time.
sends the names of the files found to a file
then a "sed" statement is created to put dump_eric infront of all filenames in the file
then the output is sent to another file
then the awk script is run after the above is done and you put in your msisdn and the awk script searches on the output in the second file and outputs that to another file.
then after all that you can view the results.
Lastly (as we all know the files that dump_eric runs on are rather large)We delete the search results as you're done with them(You're givne the option to delete)
Only 2 flaws as I'm aware of is the fact that you can only do one search at a time or else the files with the output get overwritten if somebody else is running a search after you. (I had my own purposes for that) You can easily get around this by having the script ask you what you want to name the output files, to solve the unknown factor for other users just keep a known file extension on it.
Last flaw (not really a flaw on my part a necessity because dump_eric is picky - If you run the searchtool from a different directory it includes the fullpath in the file so your call record location output would be (for me atleast) /home/bgw/AccessBill/TTFILE.3345010602123567 and dump_eric won't take anything but the call record file name and not the path) The date&time search tools must be in the same directory as the calltrace records....All the other scripts can go anywhere you wish.
Now the code I will list below is multiple scripts each with their own heading.

NOTE: Don't forget to change your PERL path for the "#!/usr/bin/perl" as your path might be different.
NOTE: There are 3 search tools: A dateonly, a timeonly, and a date&time
NOTE: I only put in the date&time search tool because it's really easy to change this script to a timeonly or dateonly and change the menu to suit your needs so you can change it at your leisure(and to save space down here:-).
NOTE: THE AWK SCRIPT(except the part where you append or output to your file)can't have any whitespace after each line or it won't work so cut and paste it but make sure that you go through it and get rid of any after each line if there is any.

I'll list the code in order.
