Can I output a CSV file in an ABAP program?

How can I output a CSV file in an ABAP program? The CSV output file format has become very popular, but I cannot find any function module in SAP that will output a CSV file by simply removing all leading and trailing spaces of each field in a given output structure and adding in the comma separators.

WS_DOWNLOAD cannot do this. I just wonder if there is another function module available to do this.

There is no provided function module to do this. You have to code the comma delimiters in yourself. I believe on one of the forums of the SAP Development Network* there is code posted that does this in a generic way.
