Foswiki script import from CSV

I am using Foswiki to pull together many different source of data in to one place

Most of the source I can import easily, but one source is table exported from database to CSV, I want each line of this CSV to be a different topic on foswiki and there are hundreds of lines

I believe I will need to write a script to solve this problem but I struggle to fine the best place to start, I am comfortable a lot coding languages so I am open to try anything

What suggestions do people have?

ExcelImportExportPlugin does what you're asking. Just create an .xls file from your CSV file. Admittedly, this plugin is a bit long in the tooth and some of the features are a bit iffy but it does do this task well enough. I have thought it would nice if someone created a more place plugin just to import CSV files, but until that happens, this is the best option.
