This one way to delete leading and trailing spaces from CSV input.
#!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; use Text::CSV; use Data::Dumper; # a core module use Data::Dump qw(pp); open my $io, '<', \q{"My Company","Gavin","Henry ","ghenry@ghenry.co.uk"," 1.00"}; my $csv = Text::CSV->new(); # nothing "fancy" needed here # defaults are fine while ( my $row = $csv->getline($io) ) { my @fields =map { s/^\s*//; #delete leading spaces s/\s*$//; #delete trailing spaces $_; #this is the "return value" from map #map returns the value of the last #statement - without this $_; you #get the zero or non-zero scalar value #of the last s/// statement } @$row; print "Using pp from Data::Dump...\n"; print pp \@fields; print "\n"; print "Using Dumper from Data::Dumper...\n"; print Dumper \@fields; print "\n"; print "5th field is $fields[4]\n"; } __END__ Prints: Using pp from Data::Dump... ["My Company", "Gavin", "Henry", "ghenry\@ghenry.co.uk", "1.00"] Using Dumper from Data::Dumper... $VAR1 = [ 'My Company', 'Gavin', 'Henry', 'ghenry@ghenry.co.uk', '1.00' ]; 5th field is 1.00

    [Corion]: marioroy: Oh, that's always cool, having API-compatible modules. This makes testing and comparing things much easier
    [marioroy]: IPC in MCE::Shared can handle 400k (sends) per second. That's seems a lot for being a pure-Perl module. After making the release, will come back and post a solution for a node by a fellow wanting faster logging.
    [Corion]: While working on WWW::Mechanize:: Chrome, I had the suspicion that AnyEvent was doing something wrong, but I was able to swap it out for Mojolicious and the error persisted.
    [Corion]: Of course, the error was in my own code ;)
    [marioroy]: Corion, start and start_child in MCE::Hobo::Manager return a MCE::Hobo object, whereas P::FM returns the PID. I can have it return the PID though. I tried Hobo::Manager with several P::FM modules, just changed P::FM to MCE::Hobo::Manager and it works.
    [marioroy]: I also have a Hobo driver for Forklift allowing folks to use in multiple classes, no conflicts with one another. That's not possible for P::FM.
    [Discipulus]: congrats marioroy!
    [marioroy]: CORE::wait works well eventhough multiple instances or classes using Hobo::Manager.
    [Corion]: marioroy: I'm not sure what the normal use for the PID is in P:FM, but I guess that most programs just ignore or log it
