In many application we need to write a file parser because some not so farsighted programmer generated a delimited file that does not follow a standard. This function helps read such a file line by line (based on endline character) and separate items in the read line based on a user defined delimiter. The function returns the items in a cell array and an optional output designating if the file being read ended.
