R is another programming language geared to statistical analysis. It
has some features that make it easy to write this sort of data
manipulation. http://www.rproject.org/
Here's a sample R function that does something similar to what you
need (note: I'm not a real R programmer, so this might be ugly, but it
works):
abCountsToMatrix < function(csvFilename, outputmatrixfile){
data < read.csv(csvFilename, as.is=T, check.names=F, header=F)
cat("Loaded", nrow(data), "rows.\n")
idrows < sort(unique(c(data[ , 1])))
idcols < sort(unique(c(data[ , 2])))
cat("Found", length(idrows), " X ", length(idcols), ".")
output < array(0, c(length(idrows), length(idcols)))
rownames(output) < idrows
colnames(output) < idcols
for(i in 1:nrow(data)){
if (i %% 100 == 0) {
cat("On ", i, " of ", nrow(data), "\n")
}
rowidx < which(idrows == data[i, 1])
colidx < which(idcols == data[i, 2])
count < data[i,3]
output[rowidx, colidx] < count
}
write.csv(output, file=outputmatrixfile, quote=F)
}

a structure like your query output and used R to convert it into a dynamic column structure.
