# extrallator is a simple perl script used to extract one column from a list
# of files that were produced by an Orca (http://orcaware.com/orca) data
# gatherer such as orcallator, procallator or winallator.
#
# syntax for now is:
#     extrallator column_name list_of_files [file [directory]]
#
# eg: extrallator 'mem_used%' /var/orca/procallator/ginette
#
# Assumptions:
# -the columns name are on the first line
# -the file extensions are correct (gz = gziped etc...)
# -.gz ==> gzip'ed, .bz2 ==> bzip2'd
# -gzip and bzip2 are in the path
