Henri Yandell moved LANG-860 to CSV-101:

    Component/s:     (was: lang.*)
       Workflow: classic default workflow  (was: Default workflow, editable Closed status)
            Key: CSV-101  (was: LANG-860)
        Project: Commons CSV  (was: Commons Lang)

> Often times there are strings which are delimited, but certain patterns can escape the
delimiter.  For example, quotes are used in CSV to escape a comma delimiter.  I have written
a couple methods for StringUtils that split strings while considering the possibility of an
escape pattern.  For example, when given "a,\"b,c\",c", it will produce {"a","\"b,c\"","c"}.
 In my code, the delimiter can be a string, and it can be escaped by any regular expression
pattern.  Unit tests are already written and passing.
> I plan to attach the patch for this once the ticket is created.  I just need a committer
to review the patch, approve, and commit it for me.
