in thread Best Way To Parse Concordance DAT File Using Modern Perl?

If it's a UTF-8 file, isn't it meant to have a 3 byte BOM? Your BOM indicates that it's a UTF-16 file, not UTF-8.

It is a Unicode BOM encoded in three bytes in the UTF-8 character encoding scheme. But it's just one character (one Unicode code point), represented in Perl as \x{FEFF} or \N{BYTE ORDER MARK}. In a decoded, abstract Unicode string, distinctions between various encodings (serializations) of the string don't exist.

    I realize it is probably impossible because the file contains evidence and attorney work product, but can you isolate and anonymize a few exemplar records that would cause the CSV or CSV_XS modules to fail in a properly formatted file somewhere?
