Subject Re: [EXT] ConvertCSVToAvro vs CSVReader - Value Delimiter
Date Mon, 25 Sep 2017 00:57:46 GMT
Thanks Arun and Peter.  Getting that resolved will be nice.  The
performance difference of the record reader/writer approach in all
this is pretty fantastic so the more we can do to iron out these sorts
of edges the better.  Thanks!

A  (\u0001) character is the delimiter of my CSV.

the delimiter, like what ConvertCSVToAvro does and also modify the SingleCharacterValidator.

Else, I am more than happy to raise an issue and submit a PR for review.
