in reply to Easy CGI Question

And for completeness sake you can always import all your vars into a separate namespace, automagically creating a set of variables on the way. From the CGI.pm docs:
$query->import_names('R'); This creates a series of variables in the 'R' namespace. For example, $R::foo, @R:foo. For keyword lists, a variable @R::keywords will appear. If no namespace is given, this method will assume 'Q'. WARNING: don't import anything into 'main'; this is a major security risk!!!! NOTE 1: Variable names are transformed as necessary into legal Perl variable names. All non-legal characters are transformed into underscores. If you need to keep the original names, you should use the param() method instead to access CGI variables by name. NOTE 2: In older versions, this method was called import(). As of version 2.20, this name has been removed completely to avoid conflict with the built-in Perl module import operator.

[erix]: still doesn't work?
[afoken]: sorry, forget File::BOM. I did not see DBD.
[ELISHEVA]: perldoc - of course
[erix]: hm, where's tux when you need him?
[ELISHEVA]: what's curiouser is that the underlying Text::CSV_XS appears to be BOM-friendly
[afoken]: DBD::CSV has a csv_class attribute. You could subclass Text::CSV_XS to handle BOMs, e.g. through File::BOM.
[ELISHEVA]: Text::CSV_XS already can handle boms - see its detect_bom flag
[ELISHEVA]: but it seems that the DBD::CSV layer on top of it doesn't
[afoken]: Also: All other attributes that start with csv_ and are not described above will be passed to Text::CSV_XS (without the csv_ prefix).
[Discipulus]: what about a good 'ol SOPW?
