why do we need a comment character?


I am again posed with the problem that I have to specify a comment character where I actually don't want to do that. The CSV Reader complains that the comment begin parameter must be a non-empty string. Clearly I am missing something... Could you please explain to me why this has to be non-empty? What is the rational behind this, so that I can adjust my thinking pattern accordingly...



I don't know the answer to your question but maybe the File Reader provides a work around?

same problem there... that is why I am asking it seems there is some reasoning behind it that I don't understand...
