This module is really great & always my first choice to read (and write ;-)) any kind of CSV.
It experienced no problems with CSV files from any kind of program - just simply tell the new() method, how the bunch you're about to read looks like, and it works.
Hint: People reading foreign language CSV's should remember to set the "binary" attribute, otherwise you cannot read extended characters.
It reads all kinds of crazy insane CSV variants that crazy insane people throw at my software. Once or twice, when it wouldn't handle one, I complained to the author and he made it work very quickly. This is the place to start for CSV reading.
As a Perl newbie I didn't realize that the XS suffix indicated that this module required access to a working C compiler and make :(. Just a warning to the uninitiated. Otherwise this looks great and I wish I could use it.
