Separator changed from , to ;
Submitted by John
For a couple of years now, ssconvert has been in use on my wife's computer to import XLSs into CSV files. This is done in two different programs, one in Python, the other in plain C, and the programs are used frequently (almost daily).
In C, the command was:
ssconvert -E iso-8859-1 --export-type="Gnumeric_stf:stf_assistant" --export-options="charset=latin1 eol=unix" %s %s\n"
Suddenly, a couple of days ago, instead of using the normal ',' separator, ssconvert switched to using ';', of course causing havoc. The same happens in Python as in C.
Of course, I can add separator=, in the export-options. But I wonder what factors could cause this sudden change. No changes have been applied recently. Are there any external factors which can influence ssconvert's behaviour? I could not discover any mention of any config files which could have been erroneously deleted.
