This package is not currently in any snapshots. If you're interested in using it, we recommend adding it to Stackage Nightly. Doing so will make builds more reliable, and allow stackage.org to host generated Haddocks.

One use case for this library is parsing records from a CSV file. A
parser from CSV to
[[String]] is not included, but there are several

millions. A future version may support packed input formats like
Text. Suggestions and patches are welcome.
