Subject [jira] [Commented] (IO-317) Need a way to extract parsed headers, e.g. for use in formatting output
Date Sun, 15 Apr 2012 22:53:16 GMT

Vishal Bhavsar commented on IO-317:
-----------------------------------

Why not use CSVParser.getRecords()[0] to get the header array?

> Parsed header names are currently not accessible except as field key names, but these
have to be known in advance.
> It would be useful to be able to have access to the header names:
> * to use in printing a header for a new CSV file. E.g. to read a CSV file and produce
a new one with some changes made.
> * to write generic CSV applications
> The headers could be made available as a String array (in column number order) from the
CSVParser class.
> The simplest would be to store the parsed (or provided) headers and return a clone of
the array.
> If headers were not provided or requested, the method should probably return null rather
than an empty array - to be decided.
