1/ It is not PERL (not to be confused with PEARL 
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PEARL_programming_language ), but AWK 
language, is very convenient for such an usage.

See http://www.vectorsite.net/tsawk.html for an AWK primer. I personnaly 
use gawk.exe (http://unxutils.sourceforge.net/) for Windows.

2/ Note that after loading a log in WT, the current database (the .DTB 
file) can be easily updated with File / Update database.

3/ The extra information files (where data are displayed in the extra 
information wnd) are described here :


It is very easy to setup such a text file :

- One record per line
- Record description : Callsign Data
- Callsign sorting is not needed
