Using a combination of Text::CSV and Template Toolkit would be a flexible solution. If you have a complex format a templating system gives you the very fine control you need.

Use Text::CSV to convert your file to a structure like:
@rows = ( { Col1 => 1, Col2 => 'AB12345', Col3 => '03.04.2016 15:43:14', Col4 => '-76775.70', Col5 => 'Toll road INC', }, { Col1 => '2', Col2 => 'CD12345', Col3 => '01.04.2016 16:39:15', Col4 => '-76775.70', Col5 => 'Toll road INC', }, );
Then pass that structure to Template Toolkit
my $params = { rows => \@rows }; my $template = Template->new; $template->process('template.xml', $params, 'output.xml');
Your template file 'template.xml' could look something like:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes"?> <Import> [% FOREACH row IN rows %] <record> <Col1>[% row.Col1 %]</Col1> <Col2>[% row.Col2 %]</Col2> [% IF row.Col3 %] <Col3>[% row.Col3 %]</Col3> [% END %] <Col4>[% row.Col4 %]</Col4> <Col5>[% row.Col5 %]</Col5> </record> [% END %] </Import>

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
    a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr
