The simple solution would be to split on comma, then strip quotes on each resulting value. However, I suspect you really want to ignore commas inside quotes, and escaped quotes. This becomes less trivial.

Text::Balanced has some general-purpose parsing routines for extracting quoted text. Regexp::Common has some regexes for matching quoted text, while handling escaped quotes. You would then have to write your own little parser to keep applying the regex.

I realize you asked to do this without the aid of modules. However, the task is much easier with one of these, and for non-trivial cases reinventing your own wheel is not advisable.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
