CSv Unique column A data while adding up column b data

I have to 2 columns of information in a CSV file example

Column A       Column B (stats)

pink                      2
pink                      3
red                       1
red                       6
red                       3
black                    1
black                    5
black                    2

the results I am after are Column A. unique words only but at the same time to add up the stats with matching keyword stats

The results should be

pink                5    
red                 10
black              8

If it could be written as another CSV file it would be appeciated

Hello,

Can you post an example of the CSV format you're working with? I assume it's something like:

pink,2
pink,3
red,1
red,6

but clarification would be handy.

      echo "{$key},{$val}\n";
}

That reads from a file and outputs it to the page/console. Let me know if you had other intentions for input/output.
