in thread Semicolon delimited to Comma delimited

Support for a single first line with just sep=; has just been added to Text::CSV_XS. It will be featured in the upcoming 1.17 release.

Enjoy, Have FUN! H.Merijn

    Wow, that's a great response time!

    Perhaps obvious but may wish to support sep=, as well, for documents going the other way (and it's nice symmetry). Excel recognizes at least these two but not sure if it'll take anything else. (I guess it'd be a bit silly to make it too general.)

      The chosen implementation makes sep=XXX valid as long as XXX adheres to the current restrictions for sep_char. This implies IIRC a maximum length of 16 bytes, UTF-8 allowed.

      I have entered the long procedure for testing. Just keep a keen eye on your favorite CPAN mirror.

      For additional pleasure, the new version will have a say method too, so you don't need two object side by side: you can now use the same object for both reading and writing.

      Enjoy, Have FUN! H.Merijn

    My respect for you just keeps climbing, Tux. Bravo.
      If you would start posting useful content instead of blowing hot air we'd have more respect for you too.
