( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
OP's code, for ease of reading, with a note re the missing "my" and strict and warnings added:
#!C:/perl/bin use warnings; use strict; use Text::CSV; my @printerstat; $file = 'inputdata.csv'; # should be <b>my</b> $file my $csv = Text::CSV->new(); open (FILE, $file) or die "Couldn't open location file: $!"; while (<FILE>) { $csv->parse($_); push(@printerstat, $csv->fields); print @printerstat; } close FILE;
when run against a csv:

this is a field to start with,field2,field3

this produces what I would expect, namely:

this is a field to start with.field2field3

On the supposition that "I want to print each line of the array" means you want each field in the csv printed on a separate line replace
print @printerstat;
for my $field(@printerstat) { print "$field\n"; }

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>

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.
