p5-Text-CSV-Hashify-0.10 – turn a CSV file into a Perl hash


The Comma-Separated-Value ('CSV') format is the most common way to store
spreadsheets or the output of relational database queries in plain-text
format.  However, since commas (or other designated field-separator
characters) may be embedded within data entries, the parsing of
delimited records is non-trivial.  Fortunately, in Perl this parsing is
well handled by CPAN distribution Text::CSV.  This permits us to address
more specific data manipulation problems by building modules on top of

Text::CSV::Hashify is designed for the case where you simply want to
turn a CSV file into a Perl hash.  In particular, it is designed for the
case where (a) the CSV file's first record is a list of fields in the
ancestral database table and (b) one field (column) functions as a
primary key, i.e., each record's entry in that field is non-null and is
distinct from every other record's entry therein.  Text::CSV::Hashify
turns that kind of CSV file into one big hash of hashes.

Text::CSV::Hashify can handle less typical cases; please consult the
documentation for its other functionalities.
