Charley Baker commented on WTR-460:

Wow, I looked at this once years ago. I vote for removing it. There are better libraries as you mention - FasterCSV, Roo, etc. There are no tests for this and I doubt we'll find anyone to support it.

> 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.
