The spreadsheet package

[Tags: bsd3, library]

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.
