cl-csv

This library aims to simplify working with csvs to the bare minimum of tedium

  • reads/writes csvs from/to strings, streams and files
  • support streaming reads (allowing processing very large csvs, through read-csv's row-fn paramter)
  • supports custom data formating
  • settable quote, separator and quote-escapes
  • supports multiline quoted data
  • A test suite

Rationale

I had many scattered, not well tested, not easily runable pieces of csv code. I was unhappy with this situation then decided to refactor all of this into a single location. I wrote tests for it and had a library so I thought I might release it. This project started as extensions and bugfixes on arnesi's CSV.

I then looked around and saw there are other csv libs out there that probably mostly accomplished what I had set out to do. However, I already had code that was tested and had an easier license (BSD) so, I figured why not just release it anyway.

Other Available CSV libs
