[REBOL] Re: Editing CSV files...

From: greggirwin:starband at: 6-Sep-2001 16:50

Hi David, << Not unless I'm missing `the point' in some big way. Editing CSV files is surely nothing like editing text files, even if CSVs are just `made out of text'. The essential idea of CSVs is, of course, that the commas separate the values of `variables', and to work on them you want to present them in such a way in an extended representation that would be not unlike a `spreadsheet' although---in most cases---one deals primarily with text, not numeric values. >> Sorry, I didn't catch that you wanted to edit them by column/field, and not just as plain files. I'm too new to rebol to just whip up an example, though some steps (like parsing the data) will be simple, coming up with a dynamic layout for editing purposes is a bit beyond my current skill level.<g> --Gregg
