hehe cheers guys that gives me a start :-) I'm just learning ruby and
hadn't used either. I stumbled across FasterCSV which told me to use
CSV however i didn't think to try the faster csv example with CSV
instead i googled for CSV examples and obviously stumbled across some
for older versions :-)
Thanks again for such speedy responses, off to get productive with some
csv file importing :-)

I'd say yes - apart from the replacement suggestion. Obviously he is
using CSV already - just with a part of the old interface that has not
survived. :-) He rather needs to adjust to the interface
CSV.foreach 'stuff.csv' do |row|
remember.guy do |as, often| as.you_can - without end
