DataConveyer_ConvertCsvToFlat is a sample console application to convert a CSV file to a flat (fixed-width field) file. It uses Data Conveyer to perform the conversion.

The input file is expected to contain aircraft data along with IATA and ICAO codes. Like so:

"Airbus A320","320","A320"
"Boeing 747","747",\N

There is a sample input file (200+ lines, 8+KB) included in ...Data folder. The file is a copy of planes.dat file, which is licensed under Open Database License.

Upon execution, the resulting output file will contan translations from the IATA code into the aircraft names (ICAO codes get discarded). Like so:

320 - Airbus A320
747 - Boeing 747
