Better, name it after its use, rather than its constituents.

use Readonly; Readonly my $SECTION_SEPARATOR => q{=}x80;

As Occam said: Entia non sunt multiplicanda praeter necessitatem.

    No. You are absolutely wrong on all counts!

    First. Look at the post I was responding to. The premise was, that it is much clearer from '=' x 80 that there are 80 '=' than if you used


    so your 'correction' is wrong in context.

    Secondly, your assumption that that string is a "SECTION_SEPERATOR" is wrong. It cannot be right, because you have no basis upon which to reach that conclusion.

    But mostly, trading use constant for that vacuous, puerile, slow, stupid, braindead, idiotic, stupid -- did I say stupid already? -- worthless, pathetic, fscked-up, oxymoronic piece of crap is ... um .. oh dear, I seems to have run out of appropriate adjectives.

    Update: Oooh. OOoh! I thought of one: fatuous. ( I didn't use that already did I? )

    With the rise and rise of 'Social' network sites: 'Computers are making people easier to use everyday'
    Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
    "Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
    In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.

    The start of some sanity?

[erix]: still doesn't work?
[afoken]: sorry, forget File::BOM. I did not see DBD.
[ELISHEVA]: perldoc - of course
[erix]: hm, where's tux when you need him?
[ELISHEVA]: what's curiouser is that the underlying Text::CSV_XS appears to be BOM-friendly
[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?
