I know that Flex does not have a great CSV parser like PHP,
in fact Flex does not have one. Anyways I have built a simple one,
but there are still some issues with it. Parsing CSV files within
flex requires the use of split() which does not perform as well as
it should. I will provide some examples.
Example CSV: 10000,99,Home
Will parse correctly as item = 10000 item = 99 and
item = Home
In this case the split option works as expected.
Example 2 CSV: 10000,99,"Home, Colorado"
This will parse incorrectly as item = 10000 item = 99
item = "Home
In which it should read item = 10000 item = 99 item
= "Home, Colorado"
Anyone who can provide a working example for "Example 2"
without doing a join (eg: item + item) would be a life
CSV stands for "character seperated values."
The character usually used is a comma.
When the file is generated, change the seperation character
to tab or '|' (pipe character). I usually use the pipe character
