generate_row(src, cells, out_dev, fs = nil, rs = nil) public

Convert a line from cells data to string. Consider using CSV.generate_line instead. To generate multi-row CSV string, see EXAMPLE below.


row1 = ['a', 'b']
row2 = ['c', 'd']
row3 = ['e', 'f']
src = [row1, row2, row3]
buf = ''
src.each do |row|
  parsed_cells = CSV.generate_row(row, 2, buf)
  puts "Created #{ parsed_cells } cells."
p buf


src: an Array of String to be converted to CSV string.  Must respond to
  'size' and '[](idx)'.  src[idx] must return String.
cells: num of cells in a line.
out_dev: buffer for generated CSV string.  Must respond to '<<(string)'.
col_sep: Column separator.  ?, by default.  If you want to separate
  fields with semicolon, give ?; here.
row_sep: Row separator.  nil by default.  nil means "\r\n or \n".  If you
  want to separate records with \r, give ?\r here.


parsed_cells: num of converted cells.
