i can try the Text::CSV module too....

The Text::CSV module provides functions for both parsing and producing CSV data. However, we'll focus on the parsing functionality here. The following code sample opens the prospects.csv file and parses each line in turn, printing out all the fields it finds.

#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use Text::CSV; my $file = 'prospects.csv'; my $csv = Text::CSV->new(); open (CSV, "<", $file) or die $!; while (<CSV>) { if ($csv->parse($_)) { my @columns = $csv->fields(); print "@columns\n"; } else { my $err = $csv->error_input; print "Failed to parse line: $err"; } } close CSV;


Running the code produces the following output:

Name Address Floors Donated last year Contact Charlotte French Cakes 1179 Glenhuntly Rd 1 Y John Glenhuntly Pharmacy 1181 Glenhuntly Rd 1 Y Paul Dick Wicks Magnetic Pain Relief 1183-1185 Glenhuntly Rd 1 Y George Gilmour's Shoes 1187 Glenhuntly Rd 1 Y Ringo
And by replacing the line:
print "@columns\n";


with:

print "Name: $columns[0]\n\tContact: $columns[4]\n";


we can get more particular about which fields we want to output. And while we're at it, let's skip past the first line of our csv file, since it's only a list of column names.

#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use Text::CSV; my $file = 'prospects.csv'; my $csv = Text::CSV->new(); open (CSV, "<", $file) or die $!; while (<CSV>) { next if ($. == 1); if ($csv->parse($_)) { my @columns = $csv->fields(); print "Name: $columns[0]\n\tContact: $columns[4]\n"; } else { my $err = $csv->error_input; print "Failed to parse line: $err"; } } close CSV;


Running this code will give us the following output:
Name: Charlotte French Cakes Contact: John Name: Glenhuntly Pharmacy Contact: Paul Name: Dick Wicks Magnetic Pain Relief Contact: George<br> Name: Gilmour's Shoes Contact: Ringo




well i can get some analogies what do you think!
