You should also check the returned status when you parse a line:

my $csv = Text::CSV_XS->new( { binary => 1 } ); my $status = $csv->parse($line); # parse a CSV string into fie +lds

Occasionally, you'll encounter an invalid CSV line and you'll definitely want to handle it. If there are any embedded binary chars, you'll want to set the binary flag when you create the $csv object as I did above.


Where do you want *them* to go today?
