Parse CSV Files

By hifi78 ·
I'm attempting to find a class that can parse CSV files while maintaing quoted blocks and ignoring Java's escape characters.

For example:

col1,"col 2", c:\test.txt

Would output 3 fields:

col1
col 2
c:\test.txt

I was working with theCSV class at ostermiller.org, but it drops the slashes in my path names. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I do not have control over the format of the CSV file.
