Subject [jira] [Issue Comment Edited] (CSV-88) Not possible to create a CSVFormat from scratch

--------------------------------------------------

bq. +0 for a no arg constructor equivalent to the default format.

If you mean the DEFAULT format here then that achieves nothing, as the user would have to
override any unwanted settings - and the use would have to know which ones to override. If
the DEFAULT format were ever later updated, that could invalidate the user's format.

I meant that the ctor should be equivalent to PRISTINE or perhaps PRISTINE + CRLF.

To fit in with the fluent API, there needs to be a static method.

For example, withDefault(char) would do.

> It's not possible to create a CSVFormat except by modifying an existing format.
> Could either make the PRISTINE format public, or provide a constructor with a single
parameter (the delimiter).
> Could provide a no-args ctor instead, but there seems little point in that.
