This sounds like an XY-Problem. What do you really want to do?

If you want to replace "," with ";" in a file you would use tr or sed on
unix like systems. If you want to do this in GNU Octave I would do:

A = fileread ("input.csv");
A = strrep(A, ",", ";");
fid = fopen ("out.csv", "w");
fputs (fid, A);
fclose (fid);

But keep in mind that you can change the delimiter in dlmread (just in
case your actual question is how to read a CSV)
