in reply to The future of Text::CSV_XS - TODO

2008-10-15 0.55 - H.Merijn Brand * Improve documentation on eol * Unicode on perl-5.8.[0-2] sucks. Don't use it! * Test error codes in expected IO failures * Allow SetDiag to be used as class method * Document the MS/Excel separation character * Hint that eof is not an error per se (RT#40047) 2008-09-04 0.54 - H.Merijn Brand * IO failure in print () was not propagated (ilmari, RT#38960)

Enjoy, Have FUN! H.Merijn

[Corion]: Discipulus: Well, in many cases it doesn't make sense to build an interface and complicated program just to enter 20 rows into a database ;) But yes, automating data imports should pay off in the long run
[LanX]: Choroba: this happened before I joined, was still in uni, but my boss was summoned to the CEO of the second biggest German bank at that time and could only say " I told them its not ready" ;)
[LanX]: memories....I missed my connection while chatting
[Discipulus]: in this case Corion we are speaking about software licensing: evry year or two we must rescan the whole ced to produce an excel report, while at every activation / disactivation we update a black box DB: i said that i a week i can produce the perl to..
[Discipulus]: rend out the xls IF i have access to the DB
[choroba]: LanX I miss working in a bank sometimes...
[Corion]: Discipulus: Ooof. Especially yearly things are things I like to automate instead of trying to remember how I did things last year...
[Corion]: And the second rule that I've learned is, that there is no one-off job, so writing a program for it pays off almost immediately. The third rule is to give all my programs numbers and have them reproduce that number in the name of their output files. :)
[Discipulus]: the true part is that also specification change between years.. but well our job is cheap but dont abuse of us.. ;=)
