(i.e. if you have a three step process, and you know A and B are the input and C is the result, I'm trying to create B from scratch... but B isn't just a value, it's a freaking perl script that interacted with perl script A to output html C.)
If I didn't have a headache before I think I will soon. Sigh. I hate doing stupid things like that.
Update: Thank God, my boss found a backup of it. It wasn't as different as I feared, but still, much easier to just recreate from that rather than from scratch. It works now.
