Writer is one of them. Calc supports regular expressions as well.

I have tested dozends of different csv flavours with all types of text,
numbers and subtypes of numbers. With one exception they imported all
well. The exception was $(123.98) for a negative amount which could be
fixed with a simple regex replacing "^\$\(" with "($". Calc is an
excellent csv import tool which imports correct cell values where other
spreadsheet apps import text and try to interprete the text on the fly.
