CSV To HTML

March 17, 2020

Today’s exercise is another in my continuing escapades in “stealth programming” using awk. I frequently write programs that produce CSV files as output. Most of the time the output file is loaded into Excel by the user. Sometimes the CSV file must be printed as well as loaded into Excel, and I wrote a program to do that in a previous exercise. I recently had a request to produce the output in HTML format, so I wrote that program yesterday.

Your task is to write a that converts a CSV file to HTML output; use whatever conventions make sense to you. When you are finished, you are welcome to read a suggested solution, or to post your own solution or discuss the exercise in the comments below.
