csvsimple – Simple CSV file processing

The package provides a simple interface for the processing of files with comma separated values (CSV); it relies on the key value syntax supported by pgfkeys to simplify usage.

Filtering and table generation are especially supported; however, this lightweight tool offers no support for data sorting or data base storage.

The package depends on etoolbox, ifthen, pgfrcs, pgfkeys, and shellesc.
