The CSV tag concerns text-based files containing tabular material using commas as a separator.

A CSV (Comma Separated Values) file contains tabular data in the form of sequences of characters (and not for example binary data). The data structure is typically ordered rows (or records) of comma separated values separated by line breaks. The files contain records of data consisting of identical sequences of fields. The records can be either in the form of the rows or columns resulting from the comma separation.
