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.

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 http://www.xoltar.org/languages/haskell.html, http://www.xoltar.org/languages/haskell/CSV.hs. 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

and names.csv with content

"FIRSTNAME","SURNAME",BIRTH
"Georg","Cantor",1845
"Haskell","Curry",1900
"Ada","Lovelace",1815

the call

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

For similar (non-Haskell) programs see cut, csvfix, csvtool.
