I am not allowed to load any modules
Core modules do not have to be installed so you may benefit from Text::Balanced.
Below code is not bullit proof but should be sufficient to process your data:
#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use Text::Balanced qw(extract_quotelike); sub getfields { my ($str) = @_; my @fields; my $field = ''; while ($str) { $field .= $str =~ s/^(\s*)// ? $1 :''; my $extracted; if ($str=~/^["']/) { ($extracted,$str) = extract_quotelike($str); $field.=$extracted; } else { ($extracted,$str) = split(',',$str,2); push @fields,$field.$extracted; $field=''; } } return @fields; } while (my $line = <DATA>) { chomp($line); print "$_\t" foreach ( getfields($line) ); print "\n"; } __DATA__ Submitted,"696,028","50,946","15,127,534","14,458,899" Expired,245,275,273,248 Less in,90.12%,90.49%,90.04%,89.55%
Output is:
Submitted "696,028" "50,946" "15,127,534" Expired 245 275 273 248 Less in 90.12% 90.49% 90.04% 89.55%

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:
