Well, in fact, a more correct name would be multilineCSV. This module takes several consecutive lines of fields (CSV, tabular, or whatever) that have the same value in a given field (the "key" field") and joins them in one logical record.
Well, I think that it has to do with CSV at least because internally it uses Parse::CSV to parse the lines.
Let's consider the following example:
Using this code:
In the first case, all consecutive lines that have the same value in the first field ("Mike" in the key field), are considered a record. In the second case, all consecutive lines that have the same value in the second field ("5") are considered a record
Hmmm, totally agree, I will try to change that name
Thanks for your comments!citromatik
