( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Let me try to simplify that a bit ...

use Text::CSV_XS; my $csv = Text::CSV_XS->new ({ auto_diag => 1, # Let Text::CSV_XS do the analysis always_quote => 1, binary => 1, eol => $INPUT_RECORD_SEPARATOR, }); binmode STDOUT, ':encoding(UTF-8)'; for my $file (@ARGV) { open my $fh, '<:encoding(UTF-8)', $file; while (my $fields = $csv->getline ($fh)) { $csv->print (*STDOUT, $fields); # no need for a reference } # due to auto_diag, no need for error checking here close $fh; }

If this script is to sanitize CSV data, I'd advice TWO csv objects. One for parsing, that does not pass the always_quote and eol attribute, and one for output. The advantage is that all legal line-endings are parsed well automatically, even if mixed.

I have no neat way to the BOM problem other than what you already use.

Enjoy, Have FUN! H.Merijn
