Apologies for possible duplication.

I scan dhcpd.leases at regular intervals using a Perl script
to extract statistics for display using MRTG.  So far, instead
of parsing the file properly, I take advantage of its apparent
line-oriented layout.

I currently need to enhance the script, and am minded to 'fix'
the parsing, probably using the Parse::RecDescent module from

If someone else has already done (some of, or something like)
this, I'ld be happy to avoid repeating the effort.

In hope, and with best regards,
