tools for handling form to e-mail data

DN
I'm receiving automated emails from a web page with a form to e-mail cgi.
Each e-mail has only one record so it is going to be time-consuming to
import manually into a database. Are there any other desktop tools
available for manipulating the data from these types of e-mail forms?

Thanks.

An email is just a text file. An email sent from a form is just a text file
in a specific format. This is exactly the sort of this Perl was designed
for.

I'm having problems with my error handling. It's kind of hard to explain so I'll just post my code and bold where the error handling is and then explain what is happening. Just to warn you, I am new to Perl so the code probably will be ugly! #! /usr/local/bin/perl BEGIN { open(STDERR, ">&STDOUT");
