support for CSV format I/O
Assigned to Nobody
Link to original bugzilla bug (#209)
a good suggestion from mattd (http://forum.kde.org/viewtopic.php?f=74&t=93733&p=190551#p190474):
Perhaps CSV support would be possible in the future?
It's standardized (RFC 4180) and seems to be the lowest-common-denominator data-exchange format supported by a very wide range of software, from spreadsheets (e.g. Gnumeric, Microsoft Excel, Open Office), through scientific computing software (e.g. Mathematica, MATLAB, GNU Octave, Scilab), to a variety of statistical packages (E-Views, Ox, OxMetrics, R, SAS, STATA, ...).
Ideally, overloading the operator<< so that in addition to current functionality it accepts a csv-file as a right-operand would fit with the way Eigen does things -- and "comma-initialization" description would still fit perfectly!
though I'm not convinced by using operator<< for that but why not.
