Subject: Seems like eol should default to newline

Hello! It seems to me that the 'eol' option for Text::CSV should default to a newline -- I don't see the advantage of defaulting to undef, because that produces unusable CSV files. It's not a tremendous problem to set 'eol', just as I say I don't see any downside (and I do see a small savings in programmer time and difficulty) to defaulting to having things work without a special option. Thanks in advance, have a good day. -Andrew

Hi. This is because the desired eol value differs when you generate a CSV file and when you parse a CSV file. See https://metacpan.org/pod/Text::CSV_XS#eol and also https://metacpan.org/pod/Text::CSV_XS#Embedded-newlines for more details.
