Why not think of Text::xSV?

    One reason could be no support for blank_is_undef/ empty_is_undef :)
      The default behavior matches blank_is_undef, but you can easily put a compute on any field that munges undef/blank/whatever values in any way you want.

      Incidentally this is the first time that anyone has asked me for anything like that feature.

    My bad tilly, I have never used your Text::xSV before, but if the opportunity presents itself, I will give it a spin.


    A program should be light and agile, its subroutines connected like a string of pearls. The spirit and intent of the program should be retained throughout. There should be neither too little or too much, neither needless loops nor useless variables, neither lack of structure nor overwhelming rigidity." - The Tao of Programming, 4.1 - Geoffrey James

[1nickt]: pryrt yes, I see. There is no way to differentiate without forcing to a string and all sort of weird stuff. It is enough. User 42 can get creative if s/he wishes.
[chacham]: i sent him a private message expressing my displeasure.
[1nickt]: chacham It was worse than 2-1 ! almost 4-1 !
[jdporter]: Dang. No good example of how to use IPC::Run's run() in its simplest mode?
[LanX]: him or her! ;)
