#!/usr/bin/perl ############################################################# # # Generic CSV to XML Processing Utility # # 24 Feb 2005 Jim Fullton, WIPO # # Takes a simple CSV (Comma Separated Value) file of # priority document numbers and creates a correct EDI # XML request. # # The CSV file is normally generated as the output from Excel # and the comma separated part isn't really needed - we # are just using the ubiquitous Excel as a data entry tool. # This tool can be easily modified by offices to allow # office-specific reference numbers in the spreadsheet. # I commented out a line that would treat the first column # as a reference number and the 2nd as the pdoc number. # # The output XML is written to stdout, with commentary # to stderr. # # NOTE: THIS IS AN EXAMPLE!! It will work "as-is" # but it is not up to standards in terms of error processing, # completeness, etc. It is a template for offices to use # in the development of their own applications. # ############################################################## use Getopt::Long; GetOptions('file=s' => \$CSVF, "doctype=s" => \@doctypes); if(!$CSVF){ usage(); } if(@doctypes==0){ usage(); } open(IN,"<$CSVF") or die "Can't open file $CSVF"; # file name will be identifier-ctry-media.csv # the identifier can be anything # ctry is the 2 character WIPO ST.3 country code # media is ftp for secure ftp download, cddvd for cd's # e.g. 12345-us-cddvd.csv or 12345-us-ftp.csv # p-doc numbers should be in this form: AT03/00100 # e.g. ST.3 country code:last 2 digits of year/number.
