[rancid] Questions about sub ProcessHistory

I’m trying to get my Aruba Instant access points to be backed up by rancid and I’m using the module developed by miken32, but it really doesn’t support a lot of the Aruba stuff that I have.  I’m trying to add a few extra functions into the perl module, but have run into some difficulty with `sub ProcessHistory` in rancid.pm.  I’ve read the description, but am not understanding the third argument.

For example:
ProcessHistory("COMMENTS","keysort","D99","!$_");   (from the aruba.pm file)


ProcessHistory("COMMENTS","keysort","F1", "!Image: $_")  (from the ios.pm file)

What is the function of the “D99” and “F1” arguments and how do I leverage them for my own function?  And, what is the string in the last argument used for?
