Subject: [Boost-users] Regex - Reading CSV files like MS Excel does
From: Jeff Dunlap (jeff_j_dunlap_at_[hidden])
Date: 2008-11-13 23:18:27

The expression regex e(",") handles files in a clean format such as:

field 1,field 2,field 3

I would like to read some CSV files where there may be fields that contain a
comma (enclosed in ""):

1999,Smith, Mike, "Smith, Mike", 55
1999,Doe, Jane, "Doe, Jane", 45

And if possible, I would like to handle commas and quotes within the field:

1999,Doe, Jane, "Doe, Jane "Happy Gurl"", 45

Can someone help me with this please?

Thank you very much
