( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
It's true that Text::CSV does not directly handle multiline fields, but I found it quite easy to get around
My task was to export/import a set of requirements between tools, for which purpose I (amongst others) needed to add a field and sort the input recursively by parent reference (using Sort::Naturally)

On reading, I created multilines as

while ( my $line = $csv->getline($fh) ) { # Manipulation of unsorted fields during import my @multiline = join(';',@{$line}); push @content, @multiline ; } if (not $csv->eof) { $csv->error_diag(); }

and on printing back, I entered data field by field as
for my $line (@result) { my @fields = split(/;/,$line); # Manipulation of sorted fields during export print $fh "$_;" foreach @fields; print $fh "\n"; }
with csv object created as $csv = Text::CSV->new({ binary => 1, auto_diag => 1, sep_char => ';' });

I.e. I never bothered to try using the module for writing back data, nor other suggestions as from above :)

  • 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).
