    Hi All,

    How can i get columns from cvs file into an array with out using Text::xSV or Text::CSV_XS.
    The CSV file is a dynamic file.

    @tmp = `more +2 flat1.txt | cut -d "," -f $i` ;

    It is giving out put and also error saying that refer help.

    you are using perl, and then you are using other OS tools like more and cut. this is overkill. in perl , you can split your string eg perldoc -f split, you can see how its done. if you want to use shell tools, awk can do that.
