in thread Parsing/manipulating CSV files

In this particular instance, I'm looking to get rid of any reliance on MsAccess. It's purely accidental that I use Access now; it just happened that I could write the app within Access as a module as it was available at work so I could use their time to write it (and leave more time for beer at home).

Database connectivity isn't a requirement for this, I want it to stand alone though I can see that it could be useful for future projects.

    If your data collection is large (for any value of large), DBD::CSV might grow (very) slow. For relatively small dtasets, DBD::CSV gives you instant relief: combining CSV files and selecting from one based on contents of others gets dead easy. When the dataset grows, and you still do not need a full relational dtabase like PostgreSQL or MariaDB, DBD::SQLite might be the interface of choice.

    Enjoy, Have FUN! H.Merijn
