I would agree that the dump may do many interesting things when it goes to CSV, including escaping certain chars. I suggest the following code (which I use a variation of to convert Semi-Colon SV files to CSV files):

use IO::File; use Text::CSV_XS; for (@ARGV) { my $out_fname = $_.'.dshield'; my $inf = new IO::File ( $_,'<' ) or die "Cannot read $_"; my $outf = new IO::File ( $out_fname ,'>' ) or die "Cannot write $o +ut_fname"; my $csv_in = new Text::CSV_XS; # defaults work for most CSV's my $csv_out = new Text::CSV_XS({sep_char=>"\t"}); # use tabs until ($inf->eof) { my $line = $csv_in->getline($inf); $csv_out->print($outf, $line); } } ## IO::File objects close automatically when they go out of scope

This gets used as: file1.out {file2.out} {...}
, and writes the results to file1.out.dshield, etc. By using the Text::CSV_XS module, you will be certain of processing CSV and Tab-SV files correctly. Though it's more code, it performs quite well and it will likely save you grief in the future.

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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
