in reply to The future of Text::CSV_XS - TODO
Twitter hinted me to implement RFC7111. See syntax below. If no (serious) objections, I will make a new release soon.
fragment This, for now experimental, function tries to implement RFC7111 + (URI Fragment Identifiers for the text/csv Media Type) 1) 1) http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc7111 my $AoA = $csv->fragment ($io, $spec); In specifications, "*" is used to specify the last item, a dash + ("-") to indicate a range. All indices are 1-based: the first row or +column has index 1. Selections on row and column can be combined with +the semi-colon (";"). row row=4 row=5-7 row=6-* row=1-2;4;6-* col col=2 col=1-3 col=4-* col=1-2;4;7-* cell In cell-based selection, the comma (",") is used to pair row +and column cell=4,1 The range operator using cells can be used to define top-left + and bottom-right cell location cell=3,1-4,6 RFC7111 does not allow any combination of the three selection m +ethods. Passing an invalid fragment specification will croak and set er +ror 2014.
