( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

scalar(@$colref) is the number of items found in the column, it would never contain a '#' symbol.

$colref->[0] is the first item on the line read in, it could contain a # symbol.

if ($colref->[0] =~ /^#/) { next; }

Notice i said next rather than last. next will go on to the next row, last will end the do loop and stop reading any more lines.

the next condition is a touch more tricky.

my $anynonblank=0; for my $item (@$colref){ unless ($item =~ /^\s+$/) { $anynonblank=1; last; } } unless ($anynonblank) { next; }
See we have to test all of the items in this case. Note th use of last here, as soon as we have found any nonblank we dont have to check anymore.

edit: opps , fixed as per Re^6: Read CSV with column mapping below

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.
