in thread Advances SQL calculations in CSV file

Sorry. I didn't mean for that to sound like a job request. I was more concerned with properly describing my needs that I was at formating my request for suggestions.

I have other scripts that calculate averages for these columns, and I will include that code here. I would like to use DBD::CSV on this, but lack the SQL experience to properly script this with out looping over and over in the file.
# Connect to the database, (the directory containing our csv file( +s)) my $dbh = DBI->connect("DBI:CSV:f_dir=.;csv_eol=\n;"); # Associate our csv file with the table name 'results' $dbh->{'csv_tables'}->{'results'} = { 'file' => "$CWD/$name"}; my $sth = $dbh->prepare("SELECT * FROM results WHERE 1=0"); $sth->execute; my @origcols = @{$sth->{NAME}}; my @cols; # = @origcols; shift @origcols; # Eliminate First Column foreach ( @origcols ) { push ( @cols , $_ ) unless /Bandwidth.*|MSTCPLoop.*/ ; # Remove + unwanted columns }; my $avgSQL = 'SELECT ' . join(', ', map { "avg($_) \n" } @cols ) . ' FROM results'; my @avgs = $dbh->selectrow_array($avgSQL); my %avgsHash; @avgsHash{ @cols } = @avgs; # uses a hash slice to populate %avgs +Hash for ( @cols ) { (my $changed = $_) =~ s/_/","/; printf STATS ("\"%s\",%f\n", $changed, $avgsHash{$_}); }

Honestly, I have only made a couple of attempts at this. I'm really stumped on how to format the SQL query. I think that is someone could point me in the direction the SQL query should look like, I'd be able to create it.
