What a brilliant tool and a great show.
This has come at a good time for me as I am deep into a large screen-scraping project which is yielding complex CSV files with many columns.
Like b-yeezi I frequently get involved with textual data manipulation in all kinds of formats. I did not know about xsv and have often had to guess the ordinal position of specific columns, and have to do all kinds of slicing and dicing operations.
Not easy at the best of times, and time consuming. All the more so if you can't easily guess the column position because you can't see.
So the timing of this show is great for me. And this is real hacking.

This is a great bit of software
Thanks for this.
I just listened to the show and immediately thought of several applications of xsv in what I do. I have installed it and am learning my way around it. Definitely a great addition to the toolkit.

I don't encounter CSV all that often, but this is a great tool to know about. Thanks!
