No. It detects line endings, but not record separators for CSV files:

/tmp>echo "foo;bar;baz" > testme /tmp>echo "1;2;3" >> testme

You seem to be confusing record separators and field separators. The line ending is the record separator and the ';' is the field separator.

    Yes, unfortunately I did.
