Replace characters of input stream on the flyby wytetygur (Initiate)
|on Apr 08, 2011 at 04:29 UTC||Need Help??|
wytetygur has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I'm fairly new to perl and am trying to figure out how I can open a file, start reading it and replace the Macintosh style CR line terminators with the Unix style LF line terminator and then send that output directly to the Text::CSV module.I'd like to do this without having to write the modified input to a file, then open that file to be process by Text::CSV.
Is there a way in perl to parse the input stream and then feed the output directly to another function? Kind of like the pipe on the command line.
I've look through all the perldoc documentation but am not getting any clues to my answers.
Sorry, no code sample because I don't know how to start it yetI'd really appreciate your help.
