Subject Re: [CSV] ASCII Delimited Text – Not CSV or TAB delimited text
Date Thu, 27 Mar 2014 15:58:16 GMT
Python (at least, maybe Ruby/perl as well) has a csv class whose
constructor takes a delimiter, defaulting to ","; R accomplishes the same
using read.table's sep parameter. OpenCSV, a Java class for manipulating
CSVs, also has a notion of a separator. It's not too difficult to add, I'd
be willing to do so, if there are enough "+1"s, let's say 4 in addition to
myself.
