scratch has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I've noticed that when I try to write data to a CSV file that has approximately 1600 variables defined (it's an empty file right now, aside from the header line with the variables listed) my code runs without errors but no data is written to the file. When I take that same file and chop the number of variables down to say, 25, everything runs fine and my data are written to the CSV file.
I'm planning on installing MySQL to handle this, thinking that there's just a limit to the number of variables that a CSV file (at least a CSV file talking to perl) can handle. Does this sound like a good course of action? Does anyone know the limit on the number of variables a CSV file can handle?
