Thanks for the links. I'll scan them.

Meanwhile Text::CSV_XS 0.27 has left the building and should be available to all when CPAN synced your favourite mirror.

2007-05-31 0.27 - H.Merijn Brand * checked with perlcritic (still works under 5.00504) so 3-arg open cannot be used (except in the docs) * 3-arg open in docs too * Added a lot to the TODO list * Some more info on using escape character (jZed) * Mention Text::CSV_PP in README * Added t/45_eol.t, eol tests * Added a section about embedded newlines in the pod * Allow \r as eol ($/) for parsing * More docs for eol * More eol = \r fixes, tfrayner's test case added to t/45_eol. +t

Work already progresses for the next snapshot that is to include ways to allow buggy formats

2007-06-01 0.28 - H.Merijn Brand * Added allow_loose_quotes (see doc) * Added t/65_allow.t * Added allow_loose_escapes (see doc) RT 15076 =item allow_loose_quotes By default, parsing fields that have C<quote_char> characters inside an unquoted field, like 1,foo "bar" baz,42 would result in a parse error. Though it is still bad practice to allow this format, we cannot help there are some vendors that make their applications spit out lines styled like this. =item allow_loose_escapes By default, parsing fields that have C<escapee_char> characters that escape characters that do not need to be escaped, like: my $csv = Text::CSV_XS->new ({ esc_char => "\\" }); $csv->parse (qq{1,"my bar\'s",baz,42}); would result in a parse error. Though it is still bad practice to allow this format, this option enables you to treat all escape charact +er sequences equal.

I'm playing to see if allow_whitespace is also feasable

Enjoy, Have FUN! H.Merijn
