Help with small script that copys link catergories
Hello,

Ok first i will explain what my script does, i run a site that uses links sql and i am trying to copy entries from one catergory to another as i have over 2500 records and 73 cats its hard to do it by hand so i created a small script that will take the links records and copy them into the right catergories however until now it worked and now it will not so i was hoping someone could take a look and tell me what is wrong.

I have included a zip file with the files which include 4 files 2 is sql files and the other 2 are files that run the import or split project.

www.itstimetoduel.com/categorizehelp.zip

Please tell me what you think and how i can fix it please as at the moment when i run it it displays an output file saying:
Processing categories...
Processing links...

but it does not supply the output sql file to upload.

Please help.
Kirk

hi,

If you are running under NT, the .cmd file may be the problem:

C:\Perl\bin\perl.exe categorize.pl lsql_Links.csv lsql_Category.csv categorize.sql >ouput.txt

leave off the
>output.txt

And see if it works. Your .pl script is writing out the file, and your output should end up in categorize.sql

BTW: does it print "Finished" ??? if not, there might be another error, but I can't run perl scripts on this machine.
