...and if your data is multiline, eg:
this is a field to start with,field2,field3 #,*,field3 of line 2 field1 of line3,and this is the second field of line3,field3 of line3

then replacing the relevant part of the above code with this fragment produces a line of output for each field:

while (<FILE>) { $csv->parse($_); push(@printerstat, $csv->fields); # print @printerstat; } spit(@printerstat); sub spit { for my $field(@printerstat) { print "$field\n"; } }

thusly

this is a field to start with field2 field3 # * field3 of line 2 field1 of line3 and this is the second field of line3 field3 of line3

This also works if some of your fields are void, eg:

,,this is a row with two empty fields
