in thread Perl as Cr*p?

Once you know Perl, why should you want to script in other languages. The number of times I've started to write a Bash script or a DOS bat file, only to finish it in Perl...

Portability, flexibility, power and expressability count in scripts as well!

[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?
[erix]: Giro d'Italia won by Dumoulin (peccato Nibali)
[ELISHEVA]: csv_detect_bom doesn't work either
[erix]: (SCNR)
[ELISHEVA]: I may have to resort to SOPW - but was hoping that this would be something simple
[erix]: I'd just remove the BOM, it is pretty simple
[ELISHEVA]: Simple yes. and I did consider that. but this isn't one off . An important data source that I don't control is generating bom prefixed utf8 files and I'd rather not have to be munging files every few months.
[erix]: on teh other hand a SOPW is pretty much garanteed to get an answer from tux (and probably the module fixed)
