Subject [jira] Commented: (SANDBOX-161) CSVPrinter#escapeAndQuote(String) doesn't adhere to CSV standard
Date Tue, 01 Aug 2006 11:44:14 GMT
    [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/SANDBOX-161?page=comments#action_12424835 ] 
            
Daniel Gredler commented on SANDBOX-161:
----------------------------------------

I agree about the "encapsulatorEscapeChar" CSVStrategy property (maybe using the shorter name
"escapeChar"). My first intuition when I ran across this problem was to look for exactly this
kind of property.

> All the descriptions of the CSV format that I've seen state that:
> - Double quotes (") are escaped using two double quotes (""), rather than a backslash
(\").
> - Embedded line breaks are allowed and don't need to be escaped... just enclose the field
in double quotes.
> - Because backslashes are not used to escape double quotes or line breaks, the backslashes
themselves do not need to be escaped.
> CSVPrinter#escapeAndQuote(String) breaks these rules. Why?
