CSV Import Library for CodeIgniter

Need to implement csv or xls import into Application created using CodeIgniter. Is there any library for this? Any suggestion appreciated.

Answer

Here is an easy way to do this. I don't know what people do but i use this

This is my csv reader library

<?php if (!defined('BASEPATH')) exit('No direct script access allowed');

class CSVReader {

    var $fields;            /** columns names retrieved after parsing */ 
    var $separator = ';';    /** separator used to explode each line */
    var $enclosure = '"';    /** enclosure used to decorate each field */

    var $max_row_size = 4096;    /** maximum row size to be used for decoding */

    function parse_file($p_Filepath) {

        $file = fopen($p_Filepath, 'r');
        $this->fields = fgetcsv($file, $this->max_row_size, $this->separator, $this->enclosure);
        $keys_values = explode(',',$this->fields[0]);

        $content    =   array();
        $keys   =   $this->escape_string($keys_values);

        $i  =   1;
        while( ($row = fgetcsv($file, $this->max_row_size, $this->separator, $this->enclosure)) != false ) {            
            if( $row != null ) { // skip empty lines
                $values =   explode(',',$row[0]);
                if(count($keys) == count($values)){
                    $arr    =   array();
                    $new_values =   array();
                    $new_values =   $this->escape_string($values);
                    for($j=0;$j<count($keys);$j++){
                        if($keys[$j] != ""){
                            $arr[$keys[$j]] =   $new_values[$j];
                        }
                    }

                    $content[$i]=   $arr;
                    $i++;
                }
            }
        }
        fclose($file);
        return $content;
    }

    function escape_string($data){
        $result =   array();
        foreach($data as $row){
            $result[]   =   str_replace('"', '',$row);
        }
        return $result;
    }   
}
?> 

And controller method

function readExcel()
{
        $this->load->library('csvreader');
        $result =   $this->csvreader->parse_file('Test.csv');

        $data['csvData'] =  $result;
        $this->load->view('view_csv', $data);  
}

And this is view

<table cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" width="100%">
    <tr>
            <td width = "10%">ID</td>
            <td width = "20%">NAME</td>
            <td width = "20%">SHORT DESCRIPTION</td>
            <td width = "30%">LONG DESCRIPTION</td>
            <td width = "10%">STATUS</td>
            <td width = "10%">PARENTID</td>
    </tr>

            <?php foreach($csvData as $field){?>
                <tr>
                    <td><?php echo $field['id']?></td>
                    <td><?php echo $field['name']?></td>
                    <td><?php echo $field['shortdesc']?></td>
                    <td><?php echo $field['longdesc']?></td>
                    <td><?php echo $field['status']?></td>
                    <td><?php echo $field['parentid']?></td>
                </tr>
            <?php }?>
</table>
