jc - JSON CLI output utility csv file parser

The csv parser will attempt to automatically detect the delimiter character. If the delimiter cannot be detected it will default to comma. The first row of the file must be a header row.

Usage (cli):

$ cat file.csv | jc --csv

Usage (module):

import jc.parsers.csv
result = jc.parsers.csv.parse(csv_output)

Schema:

csv file converted to a Dictionary: https://docs.python.org/3/library/csv.html

[
  {
    "column_name1":     string,
    "column_name2":     string
  }
]

$ cat homes.csv
"Sell", "List", "Living", "Rooms", "Beds", "Baths", "Age", "Acres", "Taxes"
