I wrote a subroutine to do almost the exact same thing just recently (though I ended up converting it to import to a db). Here it is with my db related stuff commented and fixed to populate a hashref like you've described with some sample usage based on your example.

#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use Data::Dumper; use Parse::CSV; my @list_of_fields = qw/ field1 field2 field3 field4 field5 field6 /; my $values = import_csv({ filename => '/tmp/vals.csv', fields => \@list_of_fields }); print "CSV Import complete...\n"; print Dumper( $values ); # {{{ import_csv # sub import_csv { my $args = shift; # die "No database handle provided for import...\n" unless defined +$args->{dbh}; # die "No database table provided for import...\n" unless defined +$args->{table}; die "No database columns provided for import...\n" unless defined +$args->{fields}; # my $dbh = $args->{dbh}; my $table = ref $args->{table} eq 'ARRAY' ? $args->{table}->[0] : $args->{table} ; my $fields = $args->{fields} ? $args->{fields} : 'auto'; my $csv = Parse::CSV->new( file => $args->{filename}, fields => $fields, sep_char => '|', ); my $results = {}; while ( my $row = $csv->fetch ) { my @columns = @{ $fields }; # Make certain that the number of values returned is # equal to the number of columns we're expecting. # die "Invalid number of columns...\n" unless scalar @columns == + scalar keys %{ $row }; # Creating placeholders this way so we'll always # have the exact right number of placeholders to # match the number of values in the columns list for # our sql statement. # # my @placeholders = map { '?' } @$columns; # my @values = map { $row->{$_} } sort @columns; # my $results = insert_row({ dbh => $dbh, # columns => \@columns, # table => $table, # 'values' => \@values, # }); $results->{ $row->{field1} }->{ $row->{field3} } = $row->{fiel +d5}; } return $results; } # }}}


# perl /tmp/ CSV Import complete... $VAR1 = { '200326951' => { 'rel_Access2' => '200315786', 'rel_Access1' => '200315786' } };


Therapy is expensive. Popping bubble wrap is cheap. You choose.

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.
