Hello folks, I'm seeking advice on a module if anyone out there knows
of something that's already there.
I'm looking at a few different options from cpan but I'm stuck on
finding a ready made solution for this one. There's gotta be
something I missed. Here's the problem in brief.
I have to parse a CSV file, but it's double-quote wrapped, with commas
in the fields.
Example with a header...
"1234","thing","A nifty phrase that's easy to read","some, list, of
things, with commas, not so easy"
I've tried Pasrse::CSV which looks promising, and tried doing it
myself, which works, but it's kludgey beyond useful legibility. I
believe there's a good way to do this that I've not seen yet.
Thanks for looking.
