Jarmo Pertman commented on WTR-460:

Didn't even know that there's something like this part of Watir.

Does it even have to be there? Aren't there more suitable gems for that like fastercsv and spreadsheet?

Anyone up for deleting that from Watir completely?

> The Datahandler.rb code for loading the data from an excel file or csv file, does not close the file if it is  a CSV file. The excel instance stays in memory and retains a handle to the csv file opened, thereby rendering the file read-only until the excel instance is killed in Task Manager manually.
