Dear Dan,

how data "looks like" depends on, which software "looks" at it. From
what I see in your message, there is double-byte encoding of letters
which may cause a problem.

I suggest you first "look" at your data byte-by-byte, to find a
pattern you need, then filter your data based on that pattern.
Use
   -hexdump- filename
to see how your data is structured. Check that you are using correct
separator "comma" and not "tab", that "comma" in your file is indeed a
standard ASCII "comma" and not some weird two-bytes comma, that a
"comma" byte (44) is not used for encoding other characters, etc.

Perhaps you could post a portion of output from hexdump here if this
does not contradict any rules of the list.

Regards, Sergiy Radyakin
