( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Tilly, I'd like to suggest an addition to Text::xSV. It would be useful for the calling program to access the list of field header strings that are found in / bound from the first row of a CSV file; i.e. add a method like "get_header" as follows:
sub bind_header { my $self = shift; $self->bind_fields($self->get_row()); $self->{field_name} = [ @{$self->{row}} ]; # this is new delete $self->{row}; } # the following method is new: sub get_header { my $self = shift; if ( exists( $self->{field_name} )) { return wantarray ? @{$self->{field_name}} : $self->{field_name +}; } }

That works for me, but maybe you would want to do it a little differently. Thanks very much for this module, and for your discussions in various threads about CSV data -- you got my vote.
