in thread How do I create a sort sub on-the-fly?

I had no idea that DBD:RAM was obsoleted. I remembered some merlyn-WT with it, so I just installed it to try. Will check out DBD::Anydata of course... thanks.

Update I got back at my root 'konsole' and found that anaydata failed the tests.. is that a known bug? ... i tried and tried... AnayData actually hangs on the.... I also tried cpan://Anydata... to no avail.

    No, it should pass all tests. It requires AnyData. It just behaves a little bit different from DBD::CSV when dealing with CSV data. It seems to expect that all non null fields to be escaped properly, which is not the case with DBD::CSV where a field needs escapes only when it is necessary. I was bitten by this quirk once.
