I finally was able to strike the EBCDIC TODO-item. After Karl and I got perl-5.32.0 built on z/OS EBCDIC native with dynamic loading and threads, the next step was to get Text::CSV_XS passing all tests on it. We need a goal, and this one was a real challenge, but it now works, out of the box! (I updated the TODO list in the OP)

I just released 1.44, which was also tested with the new (not set in stone) defaults that the core development team envisions for perl-7, and everything passes \o/

Check out the updated tools: csv-check and csv2xlsx.

1.44 - 2020-07-22

1.43 - 2020-05-27

1.42 - 2020-05-19

1.41 - 2020-02-16

Enjoy, Have FUN! H.Merijn
