Script To Generate CSV Files For Data

While the original data was broken down into separate machine readable files, it was pipe delimited, which isn't always the breakfast of data champions, so I wanted to make sure it was also available in CSV format to encourage as much reuse as possible, across many different audiences.

With the clinical trials data in a MysQL database, it was very easy to write a script that would output as separate CSV Files

The script could use some tweaking, and I haven't certified all the data outputed yet, but it has helped me quicklky generate a complete set of clinical trial data in CSV for anyone to download and use all, or part of.
