in reply to Bling Bling (or: Teaching Perl to Teenagers)

Perl excels at web development. Perhaps have them plan, design, and write their own facebok application?

Another possibility if the school has liability issues with anything related to social networking might be a google maps application. There are Perl API's for that as well and no limit to the coolness of things you can do with maps:

Disclaimer: I haven't developed either sort of application (yet). These seemed like helpful links to me when I read through them, but I can't vouch for the up-to-date-ness or quality of these links and libraries beyond a look-see.

Update: added link to geo coding modules.

[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
