Actually, I do not know, so the best thing is to load the package
and look at the code.

The author, Avi Bryant, is a very highly regarded developer. I expect
the code to be high quality but not necessarily well documented.

Parsing CSV files is quite simple in most cases, so many people probably
just write their own parser as needed (I know that I have done this in
the past). However, handling the quote characters and other special
cases can be tricky, and I expect that Avi has given this some thought.
