( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

The solution the other two posted is correct, but to make it even more readable and maintanable:

my $dbh = DBI->connect ("dbi:CSV:", undef, undef, { f_ext => ".csv/r", csv_sep_char => "\t", csv_allow_whitespace => 1, RaiseError => 1, PrintError => 1, }) or die $DBI::errstr; # due to <c>f_ext</c> there is no need to specify the filename! my $sth = $dbh->prepare ("select * from file");

Note however that a TAB is also considered whitespace, so your milage may vary and it may not work at all.

allow_whitespace When this option is set to true, whitespace (TAB's and SPAC +E's) surrounding the separation character is removed when parsin +g. If either TAB or SPACE is one of the three major characters "sep_char", "quote_char", or "escape_char" it will not be considered whitespace.

Enjoy, Have FUN! H.Merijn

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.
