Subject [jira] [Commented] (CSV-127) Ignore Empty Lines doesn't ignore empty first line
Date Fri, 23 Jan 2015 16:19:35 GMT


Brian commented on CSV-127:

I would still like the option of skipping lines of all white space.  The reporting tool we
use generates CSV files with a block of comments, followed by a line with a bunch of white
space (tabs), followed by the header.  I can't parse this automatically with this library
at present - I have to manually go in and remove that white space line from each file.
