Read and write spreadsheets from and to files
containing comma separated values (CSV) in a lazy way.
See also the
csv package http://hackage.haskell.org/package/csv and
Both do not parse lazy.
Reading from other source than plain
Strings could be easily added.
If you install this package by
cabal install -fbuildExamples
then an example program is compiled and installed, too.
This program fills a template text using data from a CSV file.
E.g. given a file
template.txt with content
Name: FIRSTNAME SURNAME Born: BIRTH
names.csv with content
"FIRSTNAME","SURNAME",BIRTH "Georg","Cantor",1845 "Haskell","Curry",1900 "Ada","Lovelace",1815
csvreplace template.txt <names.csv
produces the output
Name: Georg Cantor Born: 1845 Name: Haskell Curry Born: 1900 Name: Ada Lovelace Born: 1815
You may also generate one file per CSV row in the following manner:
csvreplace --multifile=FIRSTNAME-SURNAME.txt template.txt <names.csv
