In all fairness to those making ironic comments, the OP has given no 
indication that he is bound to an old version of Python.

The Object-Craft csv extension module (ancestor of the Python csv 
module) has been available since October 2000. It still shows up in 
Google [it's the 3rd result if one searches for "python csv"] and has 
the source available for download -- there are even Windows binaries 
(.pyd) for Python 2.1 and 2.2.

In all fairness to the OP, perhaps he has never heard of search engines, 
or perhaps he has no ARPA^H^H^H^HInternet access.
