Simple CSV (comma-separated values) format parser for Perl 6. use v6; use Text::CSV; say Text::CSV.parse-file('somefile.csv').perl; say Text::CSV.parse("foo,bar\nbaz,boo").perl; Oh, and the C<parse> methods take the following named parameters: :trim Removes whitespace on both ends of each value. :skip-header Causes the first line not to be included in the output. :strict Throws an error if a row has a different number of columns than the previous ones. :output Determines the shape of the returned data structure. Allowed values are 'arrays' (the default), 'hashes', and any type object (i.e. ':output(MyType)'). When the value is 'hashes' or a type object, the first line is assumed to be a special header line, the values on that line are used as hash keys, and :skip-header is suppressed. If you see yourself regularly contravening the defaults of one or more of these parameters, it might be a good idea to instantiate the Text::CSV class, giving it the default values you want: my $parser = Text::CSV.new( :output<hashes>, :!strict ); my Hash[Str] @hashes = $parser.parse-file('somefile.csv'); == License This module is released under Artistic 2.0.
