Hi all,

Thanks for those initial comments, Erik. I agree with everything you said.

Dima, I admit I am a bit hesitant about the thought that datamash should 
explicitly support an additional data format. Especially when, as far as I 
know, vnlog format is neither widely used in industry or academia, nor is it 
associated with a GNU project.

Also, I don't see any replies Assaf made to the list which would imply that he 
intended to proceed with this. I think that if he was planning to accept a 
vnlog patch, he would have posted a reply to the mailing list indicating his 
support. Not that I feel obliged to agree with everything Assaf said; but if he 
had posted a reply to the mailing list, I would at least consider what he had 
to say.

If explicit format support were of interest to datamash users, my priorities 
would be to check on the status of datamash's csv handling (and maybe add 
something like libcsv integration if the current implementation is lacking), 
and/or add json (eg cJSON integration.) Then again, we don't need to reinvent 
jq, so I would also hesitate about json.

Does this make sense?
