Tom White commented on PIG-529:
-------------------------------

Lots of existing data is in CSV format, and it uses double quotes to escape 
fields with commas:

{noformat}
a,"b,c",d
{noformat}

There are some other rules too; see 
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comma-separated_values. Pig should have a load 
function that understands this format.

> Want support for loading CSV files
