Data Pipes is a service to provide streaming, "pipe-like" data transformations on the web – things like deleting rows or columns, find and replace, head, grep etc.
Python's CSV module
It is part of the official Python distribution since version 2.3. Provides a simple shell around CSV files to read or write line-by-line, possibly use the header row's elements as keys. It is customizable to handle different separation characters (comman, tab, etc.). It uses Python's iteration model around the standard file object, meaning that it is usable with possibly large files.
PHP's built-in CSV parser
Streaming CSV parser for node.js
Tablinker is an experimental software for converting manually annotated Microsoft Excel workbooks to the RDF Data Cube vocabulary.
PLSheet is a SWI-Prolog library for analyzing ODF spreadsheets.
Harmonize is a tool (prototype) for normalizing and aligning RDF Data Cube datasets, and getting CSVs out of it.
Seemingly ubiquitous tool for working with tabular data (aka "spread sheets")
Apple's office suite, becoming fairly wide-spread on Macs and IOS platforms; "Number" is the spread-sheet tool within the suite, that can import/export CSV.
Apache Open Office's Calc
Open Source Office suite; Calc is the spread sheet tool within the suite that can import/export CSV. One of the two 'standard' office suites on Linux distributions (the other being LibreOffice).

"Functions and tools for tranforming and changing tab delimited and comma separated table files - useful for Excel sheets and SQL/RDF output"
"Easily create Open Data from Google Spreadsheets"
(sorry about the poorly chosen name!) Converts tabular data (XLSX,XLS,TSV,CSV,PSV) into an XML data structure then passes it to XSLT for conversion (generally into RDF+XML)
Also worth looking at the command line options: https://github.com/cgutteridge/Grinder/blob/master/bin/grinder#L91

R, Mathematica, Matlab and Octave
- The R language has a 'data frame' construction, http://www.r-tutor.com/r-introduction/data-frame
- Octave has http://www.gnu.org/software/octave/doc/interpreter/Cell-Arrays.html and also http://octave.sourceforge.net/dataframe/overview.html which is close to the R approach.
- Matlab has recently added a similar construct, see http://www.mathworks.se/help/matlab/tables.html (via http://www.mathworks.se/help/matlab/release-notes.html http://www.mathworks.se/products/matlab/whatsnew.html )
- Matlab tables construct may be closer to matlab/octave structure (named fields) than to a cell array (though they're related); also new in Matlab 2013b. (via b_jonas, jwe in #octave IRC.freenode.net)
- http://pandas.pydata.org/ has data frame in python
