Subject [jira] [Commented] (CSV-35) Escaped line separators are not supported
Date Tue, 21 Jan 2014 17:34:24 GMT


Sebb commented on CSV-35:

I would be OK with adding an option to support this, but it should not be called anything
to do with MySQL.

It so happens that MySQL is known to generate the escape sequence, but other CSV exports may
do so as well, so I think the option name should relate only to the functionality. The Javadoc
can mention that the option may be needed for MySQL parsing.

For example the option could be called:   withEscapeCRLF(boolean).
Default should be false (i.e. only escape the CR).

> Commons CSV doesn't handle escaped line separators, for example:
> {code}
> value1;value2;value3a\
> value3b
> {code}
> In this case the expected result is:
> {code}["value1", "value2", "value3a\nvalue3b"]{code}
> This kind of escaping is produced by MySQL, whether the field enclosing is enabled or
not. It's possible to see enclosing quotes and escaped line separators like this:
> {code}
> "value1";"value2";"value3a\
> value3b"
> {code}
