( [id://3333]=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
You have to provide us with line numbers. This can't be done on perlmonks. You can get them with:

perl -pe '$_="$.: $_"' your_input > your_output
I'm not sure how your desired output should look like. Maybe this will help you. It uses RegEx:

use strict; use warnings; while (<DATA>) { my (@fields)= split /, /; foreach (@fields) { if (s/^"((?:[^"\\]|\\.)*)"$/$1/) { #correct tr/\\//d; # No more \ print "$_\n"; } } } __END__ "Perlmonks", "http://www.perlmonks.org", "excellent ;)" "csv", "csv\"xxx", "trall\ala"
Short explanation for the RegEx:

/^"((?:[^"\\]|\\.)*)"$/$1/

^"
matches your field's quotechar at the start of the field
(...)
will "remember" what was matched inside the quotes
(?:...)*
This will match anything in place of the ... and tells the parser that it may apear as often as possible. Even zero times
[^"\\]
will match any character but " and \
|
is an alternative. Either the left or the right part has to match
\\.
Will match any "escaped" character
"$
again your quotechar but now at the end

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
