Waiting for PostgreSQL 12 – Add CSV table output mode in psql.

On 26th of November 2018, Tom Lane committed patch:

Add CSV table output mode in psql.
 
"\pset format csv", or --csv, selects comma-separated values table format.
This is compliant with RFC 4180, except that we aren't too picky about
whether the record separator is LF or CRLF; also, the user may choose a
field separator other than comma.
 
This output format is directly compatible with the server's COPY CSV
format, and will also be useful as input to other programs.  It's
considerably safer for that purpose than the old recommendation to
use "unaligned" format, since the latter couldn't handle data
containing the field separator character.

tweaking by me
