NAME ^

Text::CSV_PP::Simple - Simpler parsing of CSV files [PP version]

VERSION ^

This document describes Text::CSV_PP::Simple version 0.0.5

SYNOPSIS ^

    use Text::CSV_PP::Simple;
    my $parser = Text::CSV_PP::Simple->new;
    my @data = $parser->read_file($datafile);
    print @$_ foreach @data;

    # Only want certain fields?
    my $parser = Text::CSV::Simple->new;
    $parser->want_fields(1, 2, 4, 8);
    my @data = $parser->read_file($datafile);

    # Map the fields to a hash?
    my $parser = Text::CSV_PP::Simple->new;
    $parser->field_map(qw/id name null town/);
    my @data = $parser->read_file($datafile);

DESCRIPTION ^

Text::CSV_PP::Simple simply provide a little wrapper around Text::CSV_PP to streamline the common case scenario.

METHODS ^

new

    my $parser = Text::CSV_PP::Simple->new(\%options);

Construct a new parser. This takes all the same options as Text::CSV_PP.

field_map

    $parser->field_map(qw/id name null town null postcode/);

Rather than getting back a listref for each entry in your CSV file, you often want a hash of data with meaningful names. If you set up a field_map giving the name you'd like for each field, then we do the right thing for you! Fields named 'null' vanish into the ether.

want_fields

    $parser->want_fields(1, 2, 4, 8);

If you only want to extract certain fields from the CSV, you can set up the list of fields you want, and, hey presto, those are the only ones that will be returned in each listref. The fields, as with Perl arrays, are zero based (i.e. the above example returns the second, third, fifth and ninth entries for each line)

read_file

    my @data = $parser->read_file($filename);

Read the data in the given file, parse it, and return it as a list of data.

Each entry in the returned list will be a listref of parsed CSV data.
