Reading .csv log files

Comma-separated log files contain different information depending what component, what device, or what device app, they log information for. An example of log files in .csv format is the device app audit files, such as the BBM or Phone call log.
You can identify information contained in .csv log files because each log line presents information in a simple and consistent manner, for example, each line in the SMS log file will present information in the following format:
Name.ID,"Email Address","Type of Message","To","From","Callback Phone Number","Body","Send/Received Date","Server Log Date","Overall Message Status","Command","UID"
Each line in a Phone log file uses the following format:
Name.ID,"Type of Call","Name","Phone Number","Start Date","Server Log Date","Elapsed Time","Memo","Command","UID","Phone Line"
