Setting local $/ = undef; means that you’ll read in the complete CSV file as a single string. That is, you only end up with one piece of information, rather than the separate fields you expect.
I suggest using the Text::CSV module to get the contents of the CSV file one record at a time. The module’s POD has examples of how to do this.
