After reading everything, print the header and the rest of the rows. exit(-1) if header: print header print '==================' for datarow in data: print datarow How it works... First, we import the csv module in order to enable access to the required methods. Then, we open the file with data using the with compound statement and bind it to the object f. The context manager with statement releases us of care about the closing resource after we are finished manipulating those resources. It is a very handy way of working with resource-like files because it makes sure that the resource is freed (for example, that the file is closed) after the block of code is executed over it.

The main part of the program accepts the input and calls appropriate functions to transform data. We will walk through separate sections of code explaining its purpose, as shown here: 1. Import the required modules: import os import sys 29 Knowing Your Data import argparse try: import cStringIO as StringIO except: import StringIO import struct import json import csv 2. Then, define the appropriate functions for reading and writing data: def import_data(import_file): ''' Imports data from import_file.

Columns >>>Index([u'day', u'amount'], dtype='object') Also, the function read_csv that we used to import the data has many parameters that we make use of to deal with messy files and parse particular data formats. For example, if the values of our files are delimited by spaces instead of commas, we can use the parameter delimiter to correctly parse the data. tab', skiprows=1, delimiter=' *', names=['day','amount']) Importing data from a database Very often, our work on data analysis and visualization is at the consumer end of the data pipeline.
