in reply to Perl Array issue.

You never increment $done (or at least you don't in the incomplete code shown above). Therefore $done is always zero, and while($done==0) will keep looping.

perl -E'sub Monkey::do{say$_,for@_,do{($monkey=[caller(0)]->[3])=~s{::}{ }and$monkey}}"Monkey say"->Monkey::do'

    Hi tobyink , how can I increment $done ? don't you think that my @timestamp array is causing the infinite loop,because without this piece of code it works, how can I make the array stop at the end of the string, Thanks.

      Let's back up a step: what's the purpose of your inner while loop? Is there a reason you might want to insert some records from your input file multiple times? If not, then you don't need that while loop (or $done or $retry). Just loop through your CSV file record by record as you're doing, and for each record, do whatever processing you need to do on the fields and insert it into your database.

      ++ is the increment operator. You can also use = to assign a nonzero value if you like.
