Bad idea. In perfectly correct CSV, it is possible to have odd number of " perl line in many different ways. This is valid CSV (all lines with " have an odd number of "):

$ cat test.csv 1,"2,","3"04" 2,"newline there -> and more text for row 2",There 3,,Bah $ csv-check test.csv Checked test.csv with csv-check 1.5 using Text::CSV_XS 1.01 OK: rows: 3, columns: 3 sep = <,>, quo = <">, bin = <1>, eol = <"\n"> $

Parsing CSV with regular expressions and/or on perl default readline method is a dangerous path to walk.

Enjoy, Have FUN! H.Merijn
