NAME
        AnyData::Format::CSV - tiedhash & DBI/SQL access to CSV data

SYNOPSIS
        use AnyData;
        my $table = adTable( 'CSV', $filename,'r',$flags );
        while (my $row = each %$table) {
           print $row->{name},"\n" if $row->{country} =~ /us|mx|ca/;
        }
        # ... other tied hash operations

        OR

        use DBI
        my $dbh = DBI->connect('dbi:AnyData:');
        $dbh->func('table1','CSV', $filename,$flags,'ad_catalog');
        my $hits = $dbh->selectall_arrayref( qq{
            SELECT name FROM table1 WHERE country = 'us'
        });
        # ... other DBI/SQL operations

DESCRIPTION
       This is a plug-in format parser for the AnyData and DBD::AnyData
       modules. It will read column names from the first row of the file, or
       accept names passed by the user.  In addition to column names, the user
       may set other options as follows:

         col_names   : a comma separated list of column names
         eol         : the end of record mark, \n by default
         quote_char  : the character used to quote fields " by default
         escape_char : the character used to escape the quote char, " by default

       If you are using this with DBD::AnyData, put ad_ in front of the flags,
       e.g.  ad_eol.

       Please refer to the documentation for AnyData.pm and DBD::AnyData.pm
       for further details.
