in reply to CSV Parser, with and without encapsulation

The "best" is of course Text::CSV_XS :)

Text::CSV is just a wrapper over Text::CSV_XS and/or Text::CSV_PP.

If your CSV data is mixed and invalid, chances are that you might not find a combination of options that will work on all records, but a good start for what you describe would be something like:

my $csv = Text::CSV_XS->new ({ binary => 1, allow_loose_quotes => 1, escape_char => undef, auto_diag => 1, });

Please carefully read the manual for all allow_*** options.


Enjoy, Have FUN! H.Merijn

[oiskuu]: Have you ever had your temperature taken from the other end?
[marto]: I read about a case where people were at a launderette, or whatever they're called in the US, and as a joke, put their toddler in with the washing, then closed the door
[Your Mother]: (Work in progress.)
[marto]: unaware that the model in question started the cycle automatically, provided the money/token had already been provided
[marto]: CCTV footage of the joke gone wrong is used in educational materials now IIRC
[ambrus]: oiskuu: definitely not silly. have you ever tried to remove cat hair or dog hair from clothes? for many clothes, it's pretty hard, and running the washing machine with a cat inside would get the hair on everything.
[oiskuu]: YM, I'm interested in your questions... maybe start a a thread at polls.
[oiskuu]: marto, it ended badly? I doubt the power is easy to plug at those installations?
[marto]: oiskuu sadly yes
