Summary of what I am looking to do:  Running newsletters with sometimes 7K-10K records ($full_database) my email program will crash and will forward unsent ($unsent_log) emails into a separate file, emails only.  From that I am looking to take the $unsent_log that contains only the unsent emails and run against the $full_database in order to prepare a file to be resent ($resend), RECORDS THAT WERE NOT SENT AND WERE IN UNSENT_LOG.  I hope I explained it correctly.


#*****  unsent log of only emails

open (FILE,"$unsent_log") ||die "Can't find database\n";
@indata = <FILE>;
close (FILE);
foreach $i (@indata)
{
$i =~ s/[\r\n]//g;
($unsent_email) = split(/\,/,$i);
}

#****  full database
open (FILE,"$full_database") ||die "Can't find database\n";
@indata = <FILE>;
close (FILE);
foreach $i (@indata)
{
$i =~ s/[\r\n]//g;
($fname,$lname,$email,$address,$city,$state,$zip,$hprefix1,$hprefix2,$hprefix3,$wprefix1,$wprefix2,$wprefix3) = split(/\,/,$i);
}

#**** NEW UNSENT FULL RECORDS READY FOR RESEND
open (FILE,">>$resend") || die "Can't find database\n";
print FILE "$fname,$lname,$email,$address,$city,$state,$zip,$hprefix1,$hprefix2,$hprefix3,$wprefix1,$wprefix2,$wprefix3\n";
close (FILE);
}

RESULT SHOULD BE NEW FULL RECORDS THAT CONTAIN ONLY THE UNSENT_LOG EMAILS

Thanks in Advance...Precision
