In "CSV" the "C" stands for "comma" ("comma-separated values"). "C"
stands for "concurrent" in "CVS".
You and I both currently use a method that walks through the data
character by character, but the method I'm looking for uses the split
command in a novel way with a ten-fold speed improvement.
Earlier versions of that algorithm failed in testing some files here,

Thanks for that, Alex. I'll run the fix through some tests and see if it
