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
