    I've been on a PC for a while and by default use CSVEd as my CSV editor. I just switched to a Macbook and there is not CSVEd for mac.

    Anyone on here use a mac and what is your preferred csv editor for large csv files?

    If you're looking to split here's a multi OS solution: http://www.hjsplit.org/mac/

    If you're looking to compare data (incase you don't know if you have dupe files, just named differently) Get 'DiffMerge'

    then to combine the split csv files back to 1 file I run this in terminal:

    Code:
    cd /Users/macuser/Desktop/whatever folder they're in
    
    cat *.csv > whatevername.csv
