I wrote this code to read an excel csv file with five records per line. However, the <tr>
shows up at the beginning of the output file and the </tr>
shows up at the end. I want to get them to show up at the beginning and end of each line.
Is the probem with my CSV or my code. I can't see straight anymore :(
use CGI qw(:standard);
my $output = "new.htm";
open (OUTPUT, ">$output") or die "Cannot open $output";
open(F,$file)||die("Could not open $file");
print OUTPUT "<tr>";
my @cells= split ',',$line;
foreach my $cell (@cells)
print OUTPUT "<td>$cell</td>";
print OUTPUT "</tr>";
First few lines of the OUTPUT file.
<tr><td>Base Form</td><td>Past Simple</td><td>Past Participle</td><td>
+3rd Person Singular</td><td>Present Participle / Gerund
