Convert a .csv File to a .dbtex File

This example needs books-multiline.csv. The books.dbtex file can be created using:

datatooltk --csv books-multiline.csv --output books.dbtex 
Alternatively you can use datatooltk-gui to import the data and save it to a file called books.dbtex. Here's an example document that uses this new file:
\documentclass{article}

\usepackage{datatool}

\DTLloaddbtex{\books}{books.dbtex}

\begin{document}

\DTLdisplaydb{\books}

\end{document}

Download sample-multiline.tex or sample-multiline.pdf.
