Handle escaped quotes in CSVFiles/TextParse.jl


#1

Is it possible to read a csv that has quote-escaped quotes with CSVFiles, without keeping the 2 quotes in the string?

I’m trying to do something like this :

data =
       """
       1980-01-01T00:00:00.000Z\t5\tC\t"string"
       1980-01-01T00:00:00.001Z\t4\tA\t"Strin""g2"
       """

Yes, there is a PR that is almost done that fixes that: https://github.com/JuliaComputing/TextParse.jl/pull/108. You could try that, I think it should be essentially ready, I just need to go over some last comments one more time and then I’ll merge it.
