    Good day, I"ve been tasked with taking some MySQL data and using Perl to massage it and export to a CSV. I"m a Perl novice and looking for assistance on how to have Perl loop through the data and populate a table. And I"m limited to the Text::CSV module in Perl 5.16.There"s a number of tasks I"m trying to perform and I feel I"m over-thinking it, there must be an easier way.I"ve got a MySQL query, pulling 4 pieces of data. This report will run weekly, so I"ll have a like a day_sub to run. The plan is this will export to a CSV and the CSVs will look like a table when opened.The hope is along the top we get customers and their customer_id on the first and second rows, that they will act as the columns (or append cust_id to customer). The rows will be the parts. And counts of the parts will fill in the matrix.Additionally, I need to account for parts or customers that might have a 0 value during the time frame and total all rows and columns.#!/usr/bin/perluse strict;use warnings;use Text::CSV;my $db = MAIN::Cust::Databasemy $start = $db->select("select convert_tz(date_format(utc_timestamp - interval 1 week, "%Y-%m-%d 00:00:00"), "US/Eastern","GMT")");my $end = $db->select("select convert_tz(date_format(utc_timestamp, "%Y-%m-%d 00:00:00"), "US/Eastern","GMT")");my $query =new ({ binary => 1, eol => $/ }) or die "Cannot use CSV: ".Text::CSV->error_diag ();open my $fh, ">", "parts.csv" or die S!;my @customers_list = sort keys %customers;$csv->print($fh, ["", @customers_list, "Total"] );for my $part (sort keys %parts) { my $total = sum values $parts{$part}; $csv->print($fh, [ $part, map {$_ // 0} {@part{@parts}}{@customers_list), $total ]);}$csv->print($fh, [ "TOTAL", @customers{@customers_list}, sum values %customers ]);close $fh or die S!;** MySQL query returns:Parts Customers Cust ID count(*)Part A Customer 2 2000 30Part A Customer 5 5000 15Part B Customer 1 1000 38Part B Customer 2 2000 13Part C Customer 5 5000 27Part C Customer 6 6000 19Part D Customer 2 2000 16Part D Customer 6 6000 43Part E Customer 2 2000 8Part E Customer 3 3000 23Part F Customer 1 1000 3Part F Customer 4 4000 47** Hopeful final product in CSV: Customer 1 Customer 2 Customer 3 Customer 4 Customer 5 Customer 6 TOTAL 1000 2000 3000 4000 5000 6000Part A 0 30 0 0 15 0 45 Part B 38 13 0 0 0 0 51Part C 0 0 0 0 27 19 46Part D 0 16 0 0 0 43 59Part E 0 8 23 0 0 0 31Part F 3 0 0 47 0 0 50TOTAL 41 67 23 47 42 62

  • $42 USD/hr In Progress

    I am an experienced WordPress developer and I need some assistance on some projects. I am setting this up as an hourly rate project because there are several different projects. Please check out my reviews to get an idea of what I am like to work with.Here"s what I need:You must know WordPress, HTML and CSS quite well. Show me in your project bid.You must be prepared to do some data entry - copy and paste etc - as well as technical work.You must have at least 2 hours availability today and 2 hours tomorrow. After that, we will review and see if there is more (if it"s working out, there will be a LOT more).You must speak some English and be able to have voicecall with me on Skype before we start and during the projects. You don"t need perfect English, but being able to voice chat is important because it"s much quicker.You must have experience using premium themes and know why we make changes in the child theme, not the parent. (Bonus - tell me why in the bid).You must have some basic graphics skills, i.e. know how to crop & resize images in Paint.NET etc. Advanced graphics is great - tell me.You must have set up/used sliders and carousels before, one of the things I want you to do is create a slide on a Revolution slider.Any advanced experience you have with WordPress, security, etc is a bonus - let me know.You try to figure things out when you don"t know how to do something. Asking for help is fine too. Giving up is not an option :)Give me specific examples of work you did recently that is related to what I"ve asked. Please do NOT just give domain names (e.g. "") because that doesn"t tell me what you did.Hourly rate is important, but not the only decider. I"ve set a large range of $4-40/hr and I imagine the winning bid will be under $20/hr, maybe even under $15/hr but if your bid truly demonstrates high quality and shows me I won"t need to spend much time helping or in supervision, I will be willing to consider the high end of the scale.I"m going to leave this project open 2-4 hours in order to get a range of bids in. I"d hope to start work around 1700-1800GMT today.Spammy/generic/copypasta bids will be binned immediately. Take time to customise a bid to what I"ve asked, and I"ll take time to give you true consideration.IMPORTANT IMPORTANT IMPORTANT: Your bid MUST contain the phrase "I have removed all the brown M&Ms". If your bid doesn"t contain that phrase it will be rejected as you didn"t read this spec.

    We have a website:www.barnombord.noWe have a mobile version of our site that works great on iphone etc. The mobile site is deactivated at the time, since we are having some problems with iPads. The problem is that when the mobile version is activated, the "pinch to zoom" is deactivated on tablets as well as smartphones. Since our site appears with the full version on ipad screens, we would like the "pinch to zoom" to be enabled. We would only like the "pinch to zoom" to be deactivated on devices where the mobile version of our site appears.We use a WYSIWYG-editor for our site, so preferably this problem should be solved by creating some script that we can install on our server to overcome this problem.Please help!
