This functionality is only available in the C++ toolkits. For other languages, we recommend using language-specific functionality instead.


std::string OEStringCSVQuote(const std::string &s,
                             char delim=',',
                             char quote='"')

Returns the string s optionally surrounded by quotes, quote, only if the delim character occurs in the string or the first character of the string is the quote character. If quoted, instances of the quote character in the string will be escaped by inserting inserting another quote next to it. This is the quoting rules as defined by RFC 4180 for the comma-separated-value, CSV, format. This is a low-level CSV function, most users can just use OEStringCSVJoin and OEStringCSVTokenize.
