    Watch out though - CSV is ultimately cursed by not having a standard character set so interop will eventually lead to UTF-8/UTF-16/Latin 1 horrors....

  • Joel Berger commented on Why would I use Tie::Array::CSV?

    @Paul, I totally agree, and I wouldn’t recommend using CSV for a new project with user data. My usual use is all numbers generated by scientific instruments or simulations. For this its great. Plus many people are cursed by legacy to need CSV, and for them this is (hopefully) helpful.
