a tab delimited csv file

I think you mean "a tsv file". A csv file is, by definition, comma delimited. A better version would probably be something like this:

netstat -e | perl -ple 's/\s\s+/,/' > file.csv

. . . and, of course, neither of our versions are exactly perfect/complete.

print substr("Just another Perl hacker", 0, -2);

    You are certainly not wrong, but it could be argued that csv became a 'backronym' of Character Separated Values.
