Accessing Disam96 files from Perl?
Message ID:

Greetings All,

     First time poster to this list, so be kind please... ;-)

     Is it possible to access Disam96 files from within Perl (via a Perl
module perhaps)?  If so, how do I do this?  I've searched CPAN already,
along with (or course!).  So far, I haven't found anything.

     Background info:  We have a Sun E6000 running Solaris 8 with Sun's
stock Perl 5.005_03.  We run a 3rd party publishing application called
Vista.  Vista uses Disam96 formatted files.

     Since this is a kinda off the wall question, if you'd like to reply
directly to me I'd be glad to summarize any responses back to the list.
Thank you...
