GeneralWherein CSVs actually save my posterior Pin

So I have been out of the field for some time, and i don't do bizdev stuff mostly anyway.

But I've been building parser generators, and particularly with things like LALR it requires the construction of loads of intermediary tables and state machines.

Trying to track down bugs in these means printing them out. And I needed to figure out why my tables were off sometimes.

Trying to format these tables is non-trivial. CSV makes this so much easier.

So finally, after coding since 1986, i find a ready, real-world, non-business related programming need for CSV format

For some reason that made me really happy.
When I was growin' up, I was the smartest kid I knew. Maybe that was just because I didn't know that many kids. All I know is now I feel the opposite.
