Subject [jira] [Created] (CSV-84) Comment handling
Date Sat, 24 Mar 2012 11:04:27 GMT
Comment handling

                 Key: CSV-84
             Project: Commons CSV
          Issue Type: New Feature
            Reporter: Sebb

Comment handling is not currently fully documented / tested.

There are several possible situations:
1) trailing comment following one or more values
2) comment marker starts in the first column
3) comment marker starts in the first non-whitespace column

How should these be handled?
1) The trailing comment should be ignored
2) Entire line should be ignored, i.e. don't treat it as a blank line
3) This is trickier: if whitespace is being trimmed, treat as 2, else treat as 1, i.e. there
is a single value containing whitespace

It might also be useful to consider returning comments to the application program as part
of CSVRecord.
