    One way is to take advantage of excel's ability to open tab delimited text files with .xls extension

    #!perl use strict; open OUT,">test.xls" or die "$!"; while (<DATA>){ s/;;/\t/g; print OUT; } close OUT; __DATA__ abd;;sasa;;trre,dsa;;sdas;;dsss abd;;sasa;;trre,dsa;;sdas;;dsss abd;;sasa;;trre,dsa;;sdas;;dsss

      hey the thing is i need the output as csv , because it is an input to other sub routine
        I would change the other routine, but anyway, a simple solution would be double quote all the fields regardless.
        #!perl use strict; open OUT,">test.csv" or die "$!"; while (<DATA>){ chomp; s/;;/","/g; print OUT '"'.$_.'"'."\n"; } close OUT; __DATA__ abd;;sasa;;trre,dsa;;sdas;;dsss abd;;sasa;;trre,dsa;;sdas;;dsss
