Create csv files from Oracle
After resolving the issue mentioned eariler I successfully massaged my data. I then needed to extract the data into a convenient interchange format. To create comma seperated values from Oracle in the past I have written table specific queries in SQL*Plus and hacked the resulting output file into a reasonable format.
Not this time though. I resolved to write a generic csv creator and did just that in about two minutes. Say hello to csvDump.py. If your browser has problems with displaying the text you can download the Python code here.
Suggestions for improvement, feedback and patches are gratefully received.
