I'm not quite sure I understand where you're getting stuck, but it sounds like you have already done the CSV parsing bit - you're able to break each line into a series of fields. You also sounds like you know how to go about munging out the data you want from each field. So my best guess is that where you are stuck is with how to get data into and out of perl data structures.

The @data that you get from Text::CSV::Simple is an array of array references. That means that each item in the array is itself a reference to an array composed of three fields. That means you need to derefernce it to get at the fields like this:

for my $row(@data){ my($smtp,$user,$server) = @$row; # munge $stmp next unless $smtp; # munge $user and $server # recombine them into a string # write the string to a file }
If I've misunderstood the part you're having a problem with, let me know.

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

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
