Why not use the module Text::CSV or Text::CSV_XS to read your CSV files.
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
You could put your code print OUTPUT "<tr>"; and print OUTPUT "</tr>"; within the foreach loop.
Or you could write like so:
foreach my $cell (@cells)
print OUTPUT "<tr><td>$cell</td></tr>";
I think I misunderstood, the show up at the beginning and end of each line
Kenosis's solution shown below is alot better, using Text::CSV.
If you tell me, I'll forget.
If you show me, I'll remember.
if you involve me, I'll understand.
