in thread Who would win in a swordfight?

That would be my understanding. Musashi-yama was undefeated... Musashi got to be so good that he began fighting with sticks, oars, and other things, not even using his sword. Not sure how he'd decapitate Connor McLeod with a stick, though...

    As with all the legends listed above, it depends on which storyline you choose. :-)

    In one popular story, Musashi was defeated exactly once: by an unknown farmer who fought with a wooden staff. Musashi learned never to underestimate an opponent, and extended the lesson by deliberately fighting other swordmasters with weapons that they were unprepared to fight against; staves, wooden swords, oars.... one famous story has him knock a challenger unconcious with a wood sculpture after the foolish contender wouldn't leave Musashi alone to finish his woodcarving, and kept pestering him for a duel...

[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?
