in thread Reading file into an array and working with it.

Might be worth pointing out that on CPAN there is now a Text::CSV_XS which, as its name implies, does the parsing in C code. It is therefore much faster than the pure Perl implementation in Text::CSV.

    Hmm, I wonder if DBD::CSV could use it as a backend... and whether it would speed DBD:CSV up, because it is pretty slow.
        I have seen Merlyn mention it. Looks like it doesn't support joins which is something I really could use. Sounds like it might be faster though.
