    Fix Version/s: 1.x

> Add ability to parse single lines
> ---------------------------------
>                 Key: CSV-110
>                 URL:
>             Project: Commons CSV
>          Issue Type: New Feature
>            Reporter: Gabriel Reid
>             Fix For: 1.x
>         Attachments: CSV-110.patch
> Due to the iterator-based API of CSVParser, there is currently no simple and convenient
way to parse single lines of CSV-formatted data. The intention of this ticket is to add something
along the lines of the following:
> {code}
> CSVLineParser lineParser = new CSVLineParser(csvFormat);
> String singleLine = "a,b,c";
> CSVRecord singleRecord lineParser.parseLine(singleLine);
> {code}
> The use case of parsing single lines comes up very often in terms of distributed batch
processing scenarios (i.e. Hadoop jobs), and CSV-style formats are also regularly used in
such scenarios. Currently, projects are often forced to build their own ad-hoc CSV parsing
solutions, so adding the ability to parse single lines to commons-csv would be very useful
to these projects, as well as anyone doing parsing based on input that isn't necessary in
the form of a single stream.
