Subject [jira] Commented: (LANG-374) Add escaping for CSV columns to StringEscapeUtils
Date Sun, 02 Dec 2007 03:38:43 GMT


Henri Yandell commented on LANG-374:

It's still a parser though.

Effectively we're providing a method to implement parsers.  Unless it's a spreadsheet in which
for some reason each cell is parsing a subelement; but that seems less likely.

Given the huge plethora of csv parsers out there, I'm not sure adding a method to Lang that
does a tiny part of the job is a good idea. This doesn't feel like the Java time vs JODA time
bit where there's some value in having a tiny bit of functionality in Lang before sending
people off to JODA.

I know the code's in there and all - but I don't think this adds enough to Lang.
