Description

Reads a file containing comma separated values, and returns the file content as a list. The file may have an optional .csv suffix.

The result list contains one element for each record in the file. Each list element is itself a list, representing a data record. The data elements are either numbers (if they can be interpreted as numbers by ECLiPSe's number_string/2 predicate), or otherwise strings.

No options are currently supported.
