So why not use the Microsoft Text Driver? Well, Microsoft’s Text Driver doesn’t work on Microsoft’s 64-bit operating systems! Necessity is the mother of all invention, and therefore I’m releasing my port of OpenCSV for all .NET users to enjoy 🙂
Also unlike OpenCSV, OpenCSV# support setting whether the first row of data is the column headers, and automatically populates the column names so you don’t have to work with index values and potentially wrong data.
* Written in C# instead of Java.
* Written for .NET Framework 2.0 and above.
* Made the ParseLine() function public so you can just pass a string and parse it, in case you don’t want to parse an entire file. I haven’t tested the ParseLine direct call, fyi.
