Follow-up Comment #5, patch #8593 (project octave):

Yes, I've had several reports that csv2cell (BTW: not my code) is blazingly

The fact that read_dlm_esc() can handle variable-length lines (in terms of
fields) is a good point in favor. csv2cell blindly assumes equal line length,
so doesn't need to check, that may explain some speed advantage.

I think that as soon as .csv files get too complex, it is better to invoke
spreadsheet programs (by functions from the io package) as those are built to
handle "soup". Just IMO.

Good luck!
