csvfix - CSVfix is a tool for manipulating CSV data News: As Google has disabled the ability to provide binary downloads here, and as I want to do a release of CSVfix 1.6 in the not too distant future, I'm in the process of moving this site to Bitbucket. The source code and the manual are already there, and I hope to transfer all other content in the next few days (neilb, 12/04/2014) The Problem If you have any dealings at all with data and databases, then you almost certainly will have have to deal with comma-separated values (CSV) data.

It’s just a larger percentage of the total pool of start-ups is coming through Y Combinator.” The other distinction is that Y Combinator didn’t let investors snag any participants early, as it previously has.
