I don't have Text::ParseWords installed on my system now. but tried a re-formulation of your code (untested), yes this last line is trouble!
#!/usr/bin/perl use warnings; use strict; use diagnostics; use Text::ParseWords; my $csvfilename = "data.csv"; open( FILE, "<", $csvfilename" ) or die("Couldn't open CSV file $csvfilename:$!\n"); while ( my $line = <FILE> ) { my @fields = quotewords( ',', 0, $line ); #no & needed! #print will bomb with undef value later if problem #or ( warn "problem on line $.:$_" ); #but maybe you want something like this... warn ("less than 6 things on $line") if @fields <6; my ($id,$brand,$dbt,$cdt,$color,$number) = (@fields)[0..5]; #my ($id,$brand) = (@fields)[0,1]; if all you need is id and brand # print "@fields\n"; #prints all fields space separated print join("\t",@fields),"\n"; #now with tab sparated print "array size = ", scalar(@fields) , "\n"; print "$id\t$brand\n"; }
Update:
So the short version would be like:
#!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; use diagnostics; use Text::ParseWords; my $csvfilename = "data.csv"; open( FILE, "<", $csvfilename" ) or die("Couldn't open CSV file $csvfilename:$!\n"); while ( my $line = <FILE> ) { my @fields = quotewords( ',', 0, $line ); #no & before #quotewords() needed! my ($id,$brand,) = (@fields)[0,1]; print "$id\t$brand\n"; }

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>

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 or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
