Description 

Author

This class can be used to parse and retrieve data from CSV files either in the standard or MS Excel format.

Two methods are provided to either process the file a line at a time or return the whole csv file as an array

It can:

- Handle line breaks within quoted fields
- Support different character separator (usually a comma or semicolon) in quoted fields
- Optionally remove leading and trailing white spaces and tabs
- Optionally skip empty rows
- Support Windows and Unix line breaks (care must be taken with Macintosh format)
- Remove escape characters

Example

<?php



include_once 'class.csv_bv.php';

$csv = & new csv_bv('test.csv', ';', '"' , '\\'); // The last three fields are optional. If the last field is ommitted
                                                // the MS Excel standard is assumed, i.e. a double quote is used
                                                // to escape a double quote ("").
$csv->SkipEmptyRows(FALSE); // Will skip empty rows. TRUE by default. (Shown here for example only).
$csv->TrimFields(TRUE); // Remove leading and trailing \s and \t. TRUE by default.

while ($arr_data = $csv->NextLine()){

    echo
"<br><br>Processing line ". $csv->RowCount() . "<br>";
    echo
implode(' | ', $arr_data);

}

echo
"<br><br>Number of returned rows: ".$csv->RowCount();
echo
"<br><br>Number of skipped rows: ".$csv->SkippedRowCount();


//----
// OR using the csv2array function.

include_once 'class.csv_bv.php';

$csv = & new csv_bv('test.csv', ';', '"' , '\\');
$csv->SkipEmptyRows(TRUE); // Will skip empty rows. TRUE by default. (Shown here for example only).

$_arr = $csv->csv2Array();
