ASV 0.5 - a library for manipulating simple database formats such as CSV
I am pleased to be able to announce the third public version (0.5) of my ASV module, a mature pure Python module for inputting, manipulating and outputting simple database formats. Included is a command line interface for the quick conversion of file formats e.g. TSV -> CSV.
As standard, ASV can read and write CSV (Comma Separated Values), TSV (Tab Separated Values) and colon separated value formats although it is simple to write your own input/output classes to cope with the bizarre variations that people seem to find themselves faced with from time to time. As the 'main' format, the CSV handler has been designed to cope gracefully with a wide variety of input formats. The design of ASV specifically allows conversion between different formats (eg TSV -> CSV).
This new version of ASV is a small bug fix release and should be entirely backwards compatible with the previous release. I reccomend that all ASV users upgrade to this version.
