LaTeX Package : csvtools v 1.24 Last Modified : 3 July 2007 Author : Nicola Talbot Files : csvtools.dtx - documented source file csvtools.ins - installation script csvtools.pl - Perl script The csvtools package allows you to repeatedly perform a set of LaTeX commands on data in each row of a comma separated variable (CSV) file. This can be used for mail merging, generating tables etc. Examples given in documentation. To extract the code, do: latex csvtools.ins This will create the files csvtools.sty, csvpie.sty and csvsort.sty. These files should be place somewhere on TeX's search path. To extract the documentation, do: latex csvtools.dtx latex csvtools.dtx (If you want the documented source code as well, remove the command \OnlyDescription from csvtools.dtx) Alternatively, if you use pdflatex instead of latex, the documentation will have hyperlinks.

csvtools – Reading data from CSV files
The csvtools package allows you to repeatedly perform a set of LaTeX commands on data in each row of a comma separated variable (CSV) file (though substitution of the ‘comma’ is permitted). Such files may be used as source for mail merging, generating tables etc. Examples are given in the documentation.
The distribution also provides packages:
- csvsort, that provides analagous commands to those in the main package, having first sorted the data (using the xfor and compare packages); and
- csvpie, for creating a pie-chart from a CSV file.
The bundle has now been superseded by the datatool bundle.
