DBD::CSV limitation versus aging/unmaintained modulesby Eyck (Priest)
|on Jan 15, 2004 at 15:34 UTC||Need Help??|
I think I hit the wall with DBD::CSV module, it seems like it ignores most of rows in my file.
It all started as a success-story with DBD::CSV - I had some data in CSV format, and to access it I used loop and split
This works... but some/most of the entries are now enclosed in "", so instead of 1 I've got "1". So I go and check if someone solved the problem... and I recall using DBD::CSV long time ago..
And it's magical, it works, the code is shorter, and works correctly... all rejoice and I go on writing app built on top of DBD::CSV..until I hit some strange problems.. It looks like some selects return empty resultset when they shouldn't... So i:
and it says: 3494 but
says 164375. Something is obviously wrong here... I looked at 3494 row and few around it, and they look fine.. So after a while I returned to my old code, added
and went on with coding...
I'm not sure that's how one's supposed to use map though...
Anyhoo... DBD::CSV looks like it's been dead for quite some time now.. mailing lists mentioned in documentation moved etc...
Update I received reply from the author, mailinglist users now sit at firstname.lastname@example.org ( could've found it myself with google help, but still it's nice if documentation points to existing datasources ).
Text::CSV_XS seems like it solves my problem ( I just needed a convienient way of reading CSV file, not a way to work on it ).
