Comma-separated value (CSV) files

Many programs record data in comma-separated value format. Current versions of plt can read most CSV files. It is still necessary for each row to be on a separate line, but commas are acceptable as whitespace equivalents for separating data values within a single row (line). If your CSV file contains quoted values, plt ignores the (single or double) quotation marks.
