CSV files are not always comma separated. The DBD::CSV engine can have
different field and record separators.


>From the man page it seems ":" is a common, if not default field
separator, if that is the case your input would need quoting/escaping to
encapsulate the ":" in the record.


You can adjust the various separators and escape character to control

Can anyone tell me how to store a 'date/time' in a DBI::CSV file?

ie.    01-MAY-2009 00:00:00

Because... if I use something like:

$dateTime = "01-MAY-2009 00:00:00";
INSERT INTO table (DATE) values (  '$dateTime' )

then what's written is a quoted dateTime string:

  "01-MAY-2009 00:00:00"

not the value itself:

  01-MAY-2009 00:00:00
