Subject [jira] [Commented] (CSV-102) Commons CSV does not properly handle record separators
Date Tue, 17 Dec 2013 23:32:07 GMT


Roger Whitcomb commented on CSV-102:

I should point out that issue CSV-103 is essentially the same as this issue (same/similar
use case) and CSV-51 is another variation (i.e., that Lexer only understands CR/LF while there
are some other valid Unicode line separators).  So, I don't think we're alone in wanting some
more flexibility.

> Any specified record separator appear to be ignored and the code just assumes that standard
line endings are the record delimiters.
> I have a patch to partly address the problems that 'falls back' to the current behavior.
The patch only allow a maximum of a one character record separator.
> The approach needs verifying and also needs improving to be more generic.
