Ethan SteinSubject: Can pass text into CONV file
Author: Ethan Stein

I know that one can call a custom XML conversion file using a file as input. So one could go from CSV to XML by providing the input of


Is it possible to instead pass text from an XML node to the CSV conversion file?

In other words, if I have the following XML

<?xml version="1.0"?>

Is it possible to call a CSV conversion file with each CUSTOMER text? I was hoping to do it within memory but if that's not possible, then perhaps generating a CSV file from this data onto the file system (e.g. serialize-to-url) and then calling the CONV file with this sample file?

I realize one could also bypass the CONV and use string-tokenize to handle it manually, but that might require more code for labeling and managing the individual tokens.
