in reply to Colspan in PDF Help!

Until you find a proper solution, maybe a crude hack will do.


['Primary Info','','','',],


['Primary Info','col$span','col$span','col$span',],

and similarly for the other lines you wish to "fix". (Obviously, you could use any other string in the place of 'col$span', as long as it won't appear naturally.)

Then make a new rule for 'col$span' to make the text the same color as the background:

} elsif ($cell eq 'col$span') { $cell_props->[$j]->[$k] = { font => $pdf->corefont("Helvetica", -encoding => "utf8"), font_size => 1, background_color => '#FFCA00', # font_color => '#FFCA00', # }; }

Not sure if the Total is exactly what you wanted but the others seem like what you want, even if it is cheating a bit.

[afoken]: DBD::CSV has a csv_class attribute. You could subclass Text::CSV_XS to handle BOMs, e.g. through File::BOM.
[ELISHEVA]: Text::CSV_XS already can handle boms - see its detect_bom flag
[ELISHEVA]: but it seems that the DBD::CSV layer on top of it doesn't
[afoken]: Also: All other attributes that start with csv_ and are not described above will be passed to Text::CSV_XS (without the csv_ prefix).
[Discipulus]: what about a good 'ol SOPW?
[erix]: Giro d'Italia won by Dumoulin (peccato Nibali)
[ELISHEVA]: csv_detect_bom doesn't work either
[erix]: (SCNR)
[ELISHEVA]: I may have to resort to SOPW - but was hoping that this would be something simple
[erix]: I'd just remove the BOM, it is pretty simple
