Data Processing with Pandas
In most of my past work, I’ve always had a need to solve various sorts of data analysis problems. Prior to discovering Python, AWK and other assorted UNIX commands were my tools of choice. These days, I’ll mostly just code up a simple Python script (e.g., see the June 2012 ;login: article on using the collections module). Lately though, I’ve been watching the growth of the Pandas library with considerable interest.
