Subject [jira] [Commented] (CRUNCH-564) Add support for using escape character same as open/close quote character
Date Tue, 29 Sep 2015 21:15:06 GMT


mac champion commented on CRUNCH-564:

+1, Thanks Nathan.
I think some of the confusion around the CSV format stems from all of the (unnecessary?) configuration
options it has. I put them there for flexibility, but maybe they're just distracting. Now
that I think back, I can't really imagine a case where someone would want to specify a custom
escape character or open and close quote character.

The method escapes the CSV following the RFC4180. 
> The CSVLineReader throws exception in such a case. We can enhance the code to support
the CSVs that use escape same as the quote characters.
> I would appreciate a comment, if someone has knowingly rejected the idea due to some
technical limitation or a problem with allowing escape and quote as same characters. By the
way Apache HAWQ seem to get around this issue somehow and reads such CSVs alright.
