Load CSV data into List and Dictionary using Python
CSV (Comma Separated Values) is a simple file format used to store tabular data, such as a spreadsheet or database. CSV file stores tabular data (numbers and text) in plain text. Each line of the file is a data record. Each record consists of one or more fields, separated by commas. The use of the comma as a field separator is the source of the name for this file format.
CSV raw data is not utilizable in order to use that in our Python program it can be more beneficial if we could read and separate commas and store them in a data structure. We can convert data into lists or dictionaries or a combination of both either by using functions
csv.dictreader or manually directly
and in this article, we will see it with the help of code.
