Subj:   Re: Perl with Teradata Solution (Free Ware issue)
From:   Geoffrey Rommel

The replies you have gotten so far from John Adams et al. are right on. I will just add one point:

  2) Also, Even if PERL is allowed, is it a good tool to Edit and validate text files 5GB(22m records) in size to be finally inserted into teradata tables.  

Well, yes -- it is just as good as C at that sort of thing and much faster to develop. But why would you do such a thing? If you need to massage the records before inserting them into Teradata, you're better off writing an INMOD to your load jobs.
