in reply to How to modify/delete records in a flat-file database?

Hi,

Have a look at the DBD::CSV package. This will treat a cvs file as a database, and you can delete, modify and add entries, completely transparent.

I use it frequently, and it is really cool.

And, in CPAN, there are many other CSV packages to parse/handle these files.
