function csv2latex(csv_file, csv_sep, latex_file, tabular_alignments, has_hline, column_titles, row_titles)
## Creates a latex file from a csv file. The generated latex file contains a 
## tabular with all values of the csv file. The tabular can be decorated with 
## row and column titles. The generated latex file can be inserted in any latex
## document by using the '\input{latex file name without .tex}' statement.
##
## Usage: 
##  - csv2latex(csv_file, csv_sep, latex_file)
##  - csv2latex(csv_file, csv_sep, latex_file, tabular_alignments)
##  - csv2latex(csv_file, csv_sep, latex_file, tabular_alignments, has_hline)
##  - csv2latex(csv_file, csv_sep, latex_file,   
##              tabular_alignments, has_hline, column_titles)
##  - csv2latex(csv_file, csv_sep, latex_file, tabular_alignments,
##              has_hline, column_titles, row_titles)
##
## Parameters:
##  csv_file - the path to an existing csv file
##  csv_sep - the seperator of the csv values
##  latex_file - the path of the latex file to create     
##  tabular_alignments - the tabular alignment preamble (default = {'l','l',...})
##  has_hline - indicates horizontal line seperator (default = false)
##  column_titles - array with the column titles of the tabular (default = {})
##  row_titles - array with the row titles of the tabular (default = {})
##
## Examples:
##  # creates the latex file 'example.tex' from the csv file 'example.csv' 
##  csv2latex("example.csv", '\t', "example.tex");
##
##  # creates the latex file with horizontal and vertical lines
##  csv2latex('example.csv', '\t', 'example.tex', {'|l|', 'l|'}, true);
## 
##  # creates the latex file with row and column titles
##  csv2latex('example.csv', '\t', 'example.tex', {'|l|', 'l|'}, true, 
##            {'Column 1', 'Column 2', 'Column 3'}, {'Row 1', 'Row 2'});
