in reply to loading csv file in berkeley data base using perl

Hi there and welcome to perlmonks.

Likely what you're being asked to do is to transfer data that is formatted as comma separated values inside of a text file into another type of data store known as a Berkeley database. Putting the data into such a database lets you query and change the data with the features provided by that database system.

You could find a module on CPAN such as Text::CSV that will help you read in CSV data from a text file. There are other modules such as BerkeleyDB that give you a way to write that data into a Berkeley database.

You can always ask back here with specific questions if you get stuck on something.

[1nickt]: ugh, I stuck my head in the bass bin for 30 seconds on a dare at Ted Nugent at Hammersmith Odeon. Yes, I am 40% deaf now.
[johngg]: My daughter is incredibly jealous of my wife who got to see The Clash at Brixton many years ago. They went to see The Vaccines there recently.
[1nickt]: But the bands are even louder! I saw Spearhead (Michael Franti) at an outdoor show and had to walk a mile away to not feel pain in my chest! Babies were crying ... I asked the sound engineer why it was necessary to have the bass so loud and he laughed...
[Discipulus]: but the best i attended live was Mano Negra Patchanka at Forte Prenestino .. in 1990
[Corion]: Hmmm - Mano Negra or at least Manu Chao seem to put on a good live show. At least the one live CD I have from Manu Chao sounds good ;)
Discipulus feels the same jealousity of the johngg's daughter
[1nickt]: choroba I agree
