Small updates

I now understand the fuzz people make about embedded newlines. Text::CSV_XS has always been able to deal with that (well, maybe not always, but at least for a long time already). The problem that people might have is reading the line in the perl script. Obviously,

my $csv = Text::CSV_XS-New ({ binary => 1 }); while (<>) { $csv->parse ($_); my @fields = $csv->fields ();

Will horribly fail, as <> will break too early.

The most recent snapshot now contains a t/45_eol.t, that tests all possible eol combinations. Have a look to see that the way to parse CSV with embedded newlines should be done similar to:

use IO::Handle; my $csv = Text::CSV_XS->new ({ binary => 1, eol => $/ }); while (my $row = $csv->getline (*ARGV)) { my @fields = @$row;

or, if you open files yourself, like:

my $csv = Text::CSV_XS->new ({ binary => 1, eol => $/ }); open my $io, "<", $file or die "$file: $!"; while (my $row = $csv->getline ($io)) { my @fields = @$row;

I'm still thinking about the best way to add this to the docs.


Enjoy, Have FUN! H.Merijn
