Tag: CSV

CSV (Comma Separated Values) is a simple, plain-text, un-typed data interchange format, primarily for tabular data, in which rows are separated by newlines and values are separated by commas, with an optional header row of data identifiers. Some applications may replace the commas with other characters, such as tabs.

There is a standard, RFC4180; strict adherence to the standard is rare.

Comma-Separated Values are handled by the Ruby CSV Library.
