CSV - Comma Seperated Variables/Values
also known as Comma Delimited Values
It's a format commonly used to export database table information. The first line of a csv file is possibly a row of table headers (seperated by commas) and each subsequent line is another row in the database table, where the data is seperated by commas associated with one of the headers in the first line.

CSV files can also have strings in quotes, escape characters, and comments depending on the implementation.
