    You are being too vague here.

    • What is the format of the text?
    • Did you search this site for a solution?
    • What have you tried so far?
    • Did you trie readinbg the documentation for Text::CSV and/or Text::CSV_XS already?

    Enjoy, Have FUN! H.Merijn
      hey I saw the code , actually I am new to perl . so from what I see that it is for csv to text , nor the other war around

        the other war around

        Don't mention the war!

        But please do check out Text::CSV which allows you to read and write CSV files.
        ... as brother Tux's pointed out.

        Cheers, Sören

    package Cow { use Moo; has name => (is => 'lazy', default => sub { 'Mooington' }) } say Cow->new->name

[Corion]: hippo: Yes, but I'm not sure that it's even worth the effort of implementing it at all...
[Corion]: You'll only ever need that option if you have a long-running query whose results are not cached by your DB already, and in those cases I presume that the programmer will want to maintain the temporary tables themselves - I wouldn't know when to drop ...
[Corion]: ... the temporary tables, and also don't have a good idea on how to create unique table names for them
[hippo]: OIC. In that case leave it out but invite feature requests and see if any of the users suggest it. :-)
[Corion]: Talking about this makes me realize that it's likely only a half useful idea. But it still would be convenient to have as an option...
[Corion]: hippo: Hmmm - yeah, I could document it and wait for code implementing that option to show up ;-D
