Hi,

Code for this is fairly straight forward (naturally, you have to read the
CSV file into some sort of structure, the do the arithmetic); any Statistics
book, or Wikapedia, with give you the actual steps that you can translate
into code. However, there is a free library that you might want to look at:

There probably are others -- this is one that I have seen.

There are a couple .NET math libraries out there.

Also take a look at "FileHelpers Library". It's an open source text file
parsing library. Lots of helper classes to parse CSV files.
