I was having a really bad day and needed a quick solution to create some csv files. And this I needed to do for multiple data kinds and patterns, so I created this small script to do the job for me…
#Number of rows required in the output.
$rows = 100;
#The config and the output file
open (CF_FILE, ”<Config.test”);
open (OUT_FILE, ”>test.csv”);
# No need to change anything below this.
$count = 0 ;
#read a line from <a class="zem_slink freebase/en/configuration_file" title="Configuration file" rel="wikipedia" href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Configuration_file">config file of the type
#also any line starting with # is treated as comment.
# startingvalue incrementvalue
# so you can have any number of fields here and all of them you would be joined with , to write to the output file.
/^#/ && next;
@vars = split(/ /);
$arr[$count] = $vars;
$arr_inc[$count] = $vars;
for ($i=0; $i < $rows; $i++)
$line = join (”,”,@arr);
print OUT_FILE ”$line\n”;
for ($j=0; $j < $count; $j++)
$arr[$j] += $arr_inc[$j];
