Im using the following code:

class Target <
  Struct.new(:question)
  #Struct.new(:action, :blank, :cost, :status, :due_date,
:responsibility)
  def print_csv_record
    # use the ternary operator to use one output format or the other
    question.length==0 ? printf(",") : printf("\"%s\",", question)
    printf("\n")
  end
end

CSV.open('ActionPlan.csv','rb').each do |row|
  t = Target.new
  t.question = row[1] if row[0].to_s.match(/1.[a-z]/)#maybe can use
each.line
  pp t.question #<---to test outputs
end

The outputs are as followed:

nil
nil
nil
"Maximise use of natural lighting"
"Turn-off unnecessary lights/equipment"
"Install energy efficient lighting"
"Turn-off unnecessary air conditioning"
"Repair or replace damaged oven/refrigerator seals"
"Install draught proofing"
"Consider energy efficiency labels when buying electrical items"
"Insulate hot water pipes"
......
......

For some reason, ruby returns the entire line of row[1]. If i only
require one result at a time (i.e only "Turn-off unnecessary
lights/equipment") and do not want ruby to return any 'nil' output, how
can i tell ruby to do so?

Attached is the .csv file use. Thanks for any help
