# q - Text as Data
q is a command line tool that allows direct execution of SQL-like queries on CSVs/TSVs (and any other tabular text files).

q treats ordinary files as database tables, and supports all SQL constructs, such as WHERE, GROUP BY, JOINs etc. It supports automatic column name and type detection, and q provides full support for multiple character encodings.

q's web site is [http://harelba.github.io/q/](http://harelba.github.io/q/). It contains everything you need to download and use q immediately.

## Installation.
Extremely simple. 

Instructions for all OSs are [here](http://harelba.github.io/q/install.html).
