##Library to load and save CSV files to/from objects and ListView
AutoHotkey_L (AHK) functions to load from CSV files, sort, display and save collections of records using the Object data type
- Read and save files in any delimited format (CSV, semi-colon, tab delimited, single-line or multi-line, etc.).
- Display, edit and read Collections in GUI ListView objects.
- Export Collection to fixed-width, HTML or XML files.
- Read and save files supporting the following file encoding: ANSI (default), UTF-8, UTF-16, UTF-8-RAW, UTF-16-RAW or CPnnnn (nnnn being a code page numeric identifier), new in v0.5
For more info on CSV files, see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comma-separated_values.
Even if you don't know much about AHK objects, simply using these functions will help to:
- Transform a tab or semi-colon delimited CSV file to a straight coma-delimited file (any single character delimited is supported).
- Load a CSV file with multi-line fields (for example, Notes fields in a Google Contact or Outlook tasks export) and save it in a single line CSV file (with the end-of-line replacement character of your choice) that can be imported easily in Excel.
- Load a list and export it in an HTML file ready for your website.
- Load a file to object to run any scripted manipulation on the content of the file with the ease and safety of AHK objets.
- Add/change CSV header names, change the order of fields or remove fields in a CSV file programatically.
- Display the file content in a ListView for further viewing or editing (multiple Gui and ListView controls are supported).
- Sort the data on any field combination before loading to the ListView or saving to a CSV file.
- Save all or selected rows of a ListView to a CSV file.
- Save to a file with or without header, with the fields delimiter and encapsulator of your choice.
