Should Dstat CSV output actually be semicolon or comma separated ? #59

Currently we use a comma as separator for the CSV output, and when implementing I thought that made most sense. However a semicolon is less common to be used inside the output/string as a comma.

Besides a comma is used in Europa as a radix point, rather than the dot. And therefore the default separator used by Excel/LibreOffice is configured to be a semicolon.

What do you think ?

Changing might have impact to people already processing it with a comma.


Using a semicolon only changed recently in 0b0e958, maybe we should revert this before releasing 0.7.3 ?


I agree it should be a comma.


Alright, so let's close this. Comma it is !

comma by default is fine, configurable is even better (like cut/paste commands)
--delimeter ";" ("," is the default)
