Subject [jira] Commented: (SANDBOX-218) CSV reader doesn't handle older Mac line endings
Date Wed, 12 Jan 2011 22:14:46 GMT


Tom Hill commented on SANDBOX-218:

This isn't just "Older Mac Line Endings". 

The current version of Excel (2008 for Mac) generates CSV files with just a carriage return,
which commons CSV cannot read.

> Older Mac OS line endings which just have \r don't get treated as line endings by the
current CSV parser.
> Most likely the simplest way to get around this is to delegate to a BufferedReader to
reuse its line ending code.
