in thread Converting File Delimiters

On a client's system, where I'd have to run the change management gauntlet to install Text::CSV, I remembered this node. I had to adjust it to handle empty numeric fields (,,,):

$_ = '"",,,"abc",0,,'; print join '|', m/ "[^"]+" # quoted string | [^,]+ # or non-commas | (?<=,)(?=,|$) # or nothing, surrounded by commas or EOL /gx; # prints: ""|||"abc"|0||

    Nice extension!
