I’ve a large number of sizeable CSV files from each of which I need to extract
just 2 or 3 specific columns. Creating nested iterations through every item in
every line seems somewhat inefficient - as does loading each full file into
memory - so I feel I must be missing a trick here.
Does Livecode support any elegant way of directly manipulating or ‘querying’
(like SQL) delimited data, to extract numbered (or named) columns/items - such
as 1(Id), 3(Name) & 15(Summary) - from in each line from a CSV container or
direct from a file/URL?
