I’d suggest parsing the data first so that each element of a is itself
an array of values. That makes it very easy to handle:

a=[]
a[0]=“date;asset;cash;finance;note;”
a[1]=“2009-12-31;580;1,693;201;500;”
a[2]=“2009-09-30; 680;1,777;2497;700;”
b = a.map { |elem| elem.split(";") }

require ‘fastercsv’
FasterCSV.open(“csvfile2”,“w”) do |csv|
b.each { |row| csv << row }
end
FasterCSV.open(“csvfile1”,“w”) do |csv|
b.transpose.each { |row| csv << row }
end

Use the :col_sep option to FasterCSV if you want tab-separated values
(TSV) rather than comma-separated values (CSV)
