Please use Text::CSV or one of its friends to read your CSV file. An example of how to read a CSV file is in the CPAN documentation. Whilst you can simply split on commas as the previous example by johngg showed, it doesn't cater for quoted fields within CSV files. The most important thing to learn about Perl is not that There's More Than One Way To Do It (TMTOWTDI), it is that Someone Has Almost Certainly Done It Before, so use libraries where possible.

A Monk aims to give answers to those who have none, and to learn from those who know more.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
    a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr
  • Outside of code tags, you may need to use entities for some characters:
            For:     Use:
    & &amp;
    < &lt;
    > &gt;
    [ &#91;
    ] &#93;
