    When I have to mess with CSV material, I almost always use Text::xSV and dump it into a SQLite database. DBD::SQLite is much more fully featured than DVD::CSV (IMNSHO), and I'm not above dropping out of perl to the db shell for a few statements to best determine where to focus my code.

    SQLite never fails to amaze me with the high degree of features and performance coupled with vastly easy use. Few "throw-away" projects would have me dump data into a "real" db, even one I have running on the system, but I do it with SQLite regularly.
