The Node CSV modules are really examples of how to write documentation that makes it much more difficult to to understand an API.

The use of test cases as "API documentation" that doesn't show how to use the module for common bog-standard use cases, and instead brings in other unrelated CSV modules to conflate the example is particularly *chef kiss*

Why demonstrate the CSV parser parsing a string literal or filesystem stream when you can generate the CSV using your fancy (otherwise useless) CSV generator and hook it up in a way that's incompatible for the common use case?
