I've written a new (and third) episode  in the series
why the CSV standard library is broken, broken, broken (and how to fix it).
Let's have a look at how to handle csv records. How about returning
an array? hash? struct? row? etc.
Or how about adding new "low-level" parsers for supporting more
dialects and formats or for faster code with c-extensions?
Questions and comments welcome. Cheers. Prost.
PS: If you want to see other (more) CSV formats / dialects pre-configured
and supported "out-of-the-box" in the new (alternative) csv reader, please tell.
PPS: Why care about CSV? Did you know - data is the new gold
and CSV is the world's most popular (No. 1) data format.
