Normal FasterCSV was just too slow for the project I was working on taking a billion trallion years to read in these tons of huge CSV files, so: this.

Depends on various stuff and such it almost always reads at least twice as fast, sometimes up to 40x as fast.

It's got some caveats, though… which you'll discover in fun and entertaining ways.

Also, it's not completely a drop in replacement, but it's really really close. Why do it this way? Because I hate you and want to make you life a little more difficult whenever possible.

Note on Patches/Pull Requests

  • Spoon the project.

  • Make your feature addition or bug fix.

  • Add tests for it. This is important so I don't break it in a future version unintentionally.

  • Commit, do not mess with rakefile, version, or history. (if you want to have your own version, that is fine but bump version in a commit by itself I can ignore when I pull)

  • Send me a pull request.

  • Delete everything you've done at the point because I'm probably going to reimplement it anyways.
