Hey guys,

I hope an absolute[1] newbie plea for a few friendly shoves in the right
direction won't be unwelcome here. :)

I'm trying to convert a long list of filters from failbird format to
exim - see: http://pastebin.ubuntu.com/630072/

Basically, a parse file a for:
* listname
* relevant section of server path
and print into new file, line by line.

As I said, I'm completely finding my feet here and nothing here is
naturally "obvious" so to speak.

http://perl.about.com/od/filesystem/a/perl_parse_tabs.htm makes sense,
but clearly only is very much the scratching the surface.
Clearly http://oreilly.com/catalog/perlwsmng/chapter/ch08.html is
relevant, but probably a bit heavy for my purposes?

Does anyone have any suggestions of something to read to get started?
