When I first started playing with Perl (~1995?), my mentor showed me a piece
of his code that used formats to handle a complex text table that he had to
work with.  In the mean time I haven't ever really used them (resorting to
the printf as Jay mentioned).

I personally wouldn't mind seeing some sample format scripts just to get
familiar with them.


(And I did get some basic AJAX stuff working with the CGI module - I've been
pushed to other tasks, but I'll get a sample of that code to the list
