$1 in the push should have been $key. Translated to Text::CSV_XS

use strict; use warnings; use Text::CSV_XS; my %values; my $key; my @keys; while (<DATA>) { chomp; m/^\s*#/ and next; # Skip comment m/^\s*$/ and next; # Skip empty lines if (m/^\s* (.+?) \s*:\s* $/x) { $key = $1; push @keys, $key; next; } s/^\s+//; s/\s+$//; push @{ $values{$key} }, $_; } my $csv = Text::CSV_XS->new ({ binary => 1, auto_diag => 1, eol => "\n +" }); $csv->print (*STDOUT, \@keys); $csv->print (*STDOUT, [ map { "@$_" } @values{@keys} ]);

With the __DATA__ section added, results in:

Host,Kernel,Version,"Hot fixes","Enabled Features" NetDevice1234,"Linux 2.6.18-164.11","Driver 23.4.1 333.0 Hotfix BLD Ed +ition","HF372590 HF372804 HF372864","FTP HTTP SMTP Active Directory"

Enjoy, Have FUN! H.Merijn
