CSV Quick Filter (CSVQF) - v0.49q

This program allows you to load a CSV file (any delimited file) and use various search criteria to filter the listview.
You can export the results to a new file.
The regular expression search is case sensitive and should be a Perl-compatible regular expression (PCRE, www.pcre.org)

Note: an entire row of the CSV is searched at once and not on a cell by cell basis to provide faster search results.

Command line options

CSVQF file ["delimiter"] ["header"] ["Columns to use in CSV"]

Example, opening a | delimited file:

CSVQF data.csv "|"

Use the first row as header for listview: (header = 1,Y,Yes,T,True)

CSVQF data.csv "," "1"

Use \t for a tab delimited file

CSVQF tabdata.txt "\t"

Use \s for a space delimited file

CSVQF data.txt "\s"

Only use specific columns (1 & 5):

CSVQF data.csv "," "0" "1,5"

0 here means don't use first row as header


There are several search options available in the GUI. To search in a specific column you can use a shorthand like so:


means search for 'there' in the second column, you can combine several column searches:

2|there 5|that

means search for 'there' in the second column and 'that' in the fitfh column.

If the number of columns in irregular, you can select "LAST" in the column pulldown menu and it will always search the last column that has data in it.
