NAME
       csv2yapet - convert CSV file to YAPET file

SYNOPSIS
       csv2yapet [[-c] | [-h] |	[-V]] |	[[-p password] [-q] [-s	separator]]
       src dst

DESCRIPTION
       Convert a CSV file src to an YAPET file dst. The	default	character for
       delimiting the fields is	',' (comma) unless specified otherwise on the
       command line by providing the -s.

       Fields containing the field separator character have to be enclosed in
       double quotes (").

       In order	to convert a double quote character it has to be preceded by
       another double quote character.

       The following table describes the fields	of the source CSV file as
       expected	by csv2yapet:
