    To elaborate: Text::CSV can do CSV parsing, but you'll need to make sure you send it the appropriate fields (using the input separator above, or whatever trick you prefer). Another piece of advice about Text::CSV: The docs mention that a certain range of characters is allowed. If a character outside that range is in the data, it will quietly not work.

      You must put Text::CSV in binary mode:

      my $csv = Text::CSV->new( {binary => 1, eol = $/ } );
