Mike's Script Archive

Welcome to Mike's script archive on perlmeister.com. These are all scripts whipped up for immediate needs, but with documentation added just in case I'd need them later on. In order to find a home for them without spending too much time and yet have other people benefit, I came up with this format.

The scripts all include documentation and a version number. In order to figure out what a script does, just click on the link, and you'll see nicely formatted documentation including a download link for the script source. Running perldoc scriptname or scriptname -h once you've downloaded a script works as well.

They all come with no warranty, but they're free software. You can redistribute them and/or modify them under the same terms as Perl itself.

If you're a regular at Mike's Script Archive, download the script msa first, it'll help you download other scripts on demand from the command line without consulting a browser.
