tab-separated values, aka tab-separated values, is a meta language created in 1993. A tab-separated values (TSV) file is a simple text format for storing data in a tabular structure, e.g., database table or spreadsheet data, and a way of exchanging information between databases. Each record in the table is one line of the text file. Each field value of a record is separated from the next by a tab character. Read more on Wikipedia...
