Greetings, I am trying to learn how to parse a csv in ruby. In the class example, the goal is to organize by the date field. Only thing is, I do not recognize the format. I think the date fields is encoded. I am new to ruby and have gotten as far as to read the CSV in terminal. Is there a book or post that explains the tools used to parse and potentially decode a field. Here is a sample of the data I am working with: id date User1 1309380645 User2 1237178109 Thanks, Robert

The Ruby Standard Library has a CSV class. Have a look at it. The library documentation also contains small usage examples.
