It also ignores nested comma-characters, which IIRC are quite common in addresses. It also disables addresses so complicated they need embedded newlines.

I like the approach, but please advice the use of Text::CSV_XS and/or Text::CSV.

    I think ww did "advise" that on the second point, though he didn't mention one.

    ..But if you're still going to do it in Perl, it looks as though you have a comma-delimited source file, AKA, CSV. So use one of the csv modules to drag in your data (not that what you were doing is terribly wrong).

    If you tell me, I'll forget.
    If you show me, I'll remember.
    if you involve me, I'll understand.
