TextParse uses Julia's generated functions to generate efficient specialized parsers for text files. Right now, there is a good set of features for reading CSV files (see the documentation). Parsing packages can use TextParse as a framework for implementing parsers for other formats.
CSV.jl - Package for reading CSV files into DataStreams API. It loads the data into a
DataFrame. TextParse tries to be minimal and returns a tuple of vectors as the output of
csvread and adds useful features such as parsing string columns as PooledArrays.
