The grammar and poor word placements in this question makes it impossible to determine what you are trying to do, sorry.

From my understanding, and it took me several minutes to piece this together, you want to search a perl script to determine how it generates oracle's tnsnames.org from a CSV file?

I agree.  Can you explain what you are wanting?

A perl script, tnsnames.ora file and a CSV file really have nothing to do with one another.

Also agree.  If the tnsnames syntax is throwing you, check out http://www.orafaq.com/wiki/Tnsnames.ora -- one of many sources, and simpler than some.

That explaination does not help.

Are you wanting to parse the tnsnames.ora file and create some CSV using Perl?
Are you wanting to take a CSV file and create a tnsnames.ora file using Perl?

Are you wanting to do something completely different?

Maybe some sample data and expected results would help us understand what you want to do.

alias = (ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL = TCP)(HOST = server)(PORT = 101)) ---> tnsnames.ora

alias;server;port ----> csv file

There are a TON of scripts out there on parsing a CSV file using Perl (even though your file is semi-colon delimited not comma).

The example below uses SPLIT:
http://perl.about.com/od/filesystem/a/perl_parse_tabs.htm

I don't have Perl to test it but it should go something like:

 open (FILE, 'myfile.csv');
 while (<FILE>) {
 chomp;
 ($alias, $server, $port) = split("\t");
 print "$alias = (ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL = TCP)(HOST = $server)(PORT = $port))
 }
 close (FILE);
 exit;
