Writing to CSV from String or List
Writing to a .csv file is not unlike writing to a regular file in most regards, and is fairly straightforward. I will, to the best of my ability, cover the easiest, and most efficient approach to the problem.
|open ("/path/", "mode")||Specify the path to your CSV file|
|open (path, "mode")||Specify mode to open file in (read, write, etc.)|
|csv.writer(file, delimiter)||Pass opened CSV file here|
|csv.writer(file, delimiter=' ')||Specify delimiter character or pattern|
open( path, "wb")
"wb" - Write mode.
b parameter in
"wb" we have used, is necessary only if you want to open it in binary mode, which is needed only in some operating systems like Windows.
csv.writer ( csv_file, delimiter=',' )
Here the delimiter we have used, is
,, because we want each cell of data in a row, to contain the first name, last name, and age respectively.
Since our list is split along the
, too, it proves rather convenient for us.
