Common Input Component

Hi All,
I am fairly new to Talend world.
I have requirement to develop generic code to accept input and load to output. (Please make a basic assumption here as this loading will be without any transformation.)
The input can be file of any type (xls, csv, fixed length). I want to understand if Talend has any component which can handle generic file input and other specific details can be parameterised. (like if delimited file, its comma or pipe as delimiter etc)
Any pointers towards the solution would be helpful.
Regards,
Yuvaraj.

Re: Common Input Component

Hi,
To read delimited data from a file, use tFileInputDelimited
To write delimited data into a file, use tFileOutputDelimited.
See the links for use case documentation.

Re: Common Input Component

Thanks Elisa.
But I am aware of these components, I am interested to know any common component which can accept any input file and specifications can be provided later on. More like generic input component.
