Information about CSV and PBF file formats

Full name CSV - Comma-Separated Values Protocolbuffer Binary Format
File extension .csv .pbf
MIME type text/csv
Developed by Informational RFC Google
Type of format multi-platform, serial data streams
Description In computing, a comma-separated values (CSV) file stores tabular data (numbers and text) in plain text. Each line of the file is a data record. Each record consists of one or more fields, separated by commas. The comma as a field separator is the source of the name for this file format. PBF Format ("Protocolbuffer Binary Format") is primarily an alternative to the XML format. It is about half of the size of a gzipped planet and about 30% smaller than a zipped planet. It is also about 5x faster to write than a gzipped planet and 6x faster to read than a gzipped planet. In addition, the format was designed to support future extensibility and flexibility.
Technical details The CSV file format is not standardized. The basic idea of separating fields with a comma is clear, but that idea gets complicated when the field data may also contain commas or even embedded line-breaks. CSV implementations may not handle such field data or use quotation marks to surround the field.
