var
   csv : TCSVReader;
   row : TCSVReader.TRow;
   i : Integer;
begin
   { Just show the csv file }
   csv := TCSVReader.Create('your-file.csv');
   for row in csv do begin
      for i := 0 to row.Count - 1 do begin
         if i > 0 then write(' ');
         write(row[i]);
      end;
      writeln;
   end;
   csv.Free;
end.

begin
   csv := TCSVWriter.Create('your-file.csv');
   { Write a header line }
   csv.AddRow(['Nr', 'Random number']);
