csv search and print

I have a csv file containing lot of rows & columns. I wanted to search thru the
heading for each column for a string and then print all the headings and the
corresponding rows if a match is found.

Any advise?

Thanks

1. Clarify your requirements: "corresponding rows" ... corresponding
to what? How many rows/columns is a "lot"? "I have a csv file" ...
only one? "search thru the heading for each column for a string" is
open to misinterpretation of various kinds :-)
2. Write your script.
3. Ask a specific question if you have a problem.
