I have a application generating logs in every 5 sec. The logs are in below format.

11:13:49.250,interface,0,RX,0
11:13:49.250,interface,0,TX,0
11:13:49.250,interface,1,close,0
11:13:49.250,interface,4,error,593
11:13:49.250,interface,4,idle,2994215
and so on for other interfaces...

I am working to convert these into below CSV format

Time,interface.RX,interface.TX,interface.close....
11:13:49,0,0,0,....

Simple as of now but the problem is, I have to get the data in csv format online, i.e as soon the log file updated the CSV should also be updated.

Is there any way to do this using perl.
