csvreader v1.0 - read tabular comma-separated values (csv) the right way (incl. hash readers, converters, enumerables, dialects, and more)


I've uploaded [version 1.0 of the new comma-separated values
csvreader library / gem [1] that lets you read tabular data in the
comma-separated values (csv) format the right way :-), that is, the
basic methods such as ` `or `` use best practices
out-of-the-box with zero-configuration.

Under the hood the new library includes purpose-built "backend"
parsers (e.g. `ParserStd`, `ParserStrict`, `ParserTab`, etc.) so you
can handle
all the popular comma-separated values (csv) formats / dialects such
as MySQL (use ``) or PostgreSQL (use
``) exports and more using unix-style escapes and
`\N` or unquoted empty values for null/nil and so on.

Data is the new gold :-) Happy data / gold mining with the new
csvreader library / gem (in ruby). Cheers. Prost.

PS: [What's wrong (broken) in the standard csv library? See the let's
count the ways article series [2].
