      my @data = map { [split /,/] } <>;

      You might want a chomp in there to avoid leaving the line terminator in the last field.

      my @data = map { chomp; [split /,/] } <>;

      I second your *sigh* by the way.

      Cheers,

      JohnGG

    Just don't come back whinging when you have data with embedded commas or newlines and the quick hack no longer works. You may get away with it this time, but n months down the road someone (possibly even yourself) will be swearing under their breath at you as they clean up the mess.
