np.loadtxt from string
np.loadtxt doesn't support loading from a nice old-fashioned
io.StringIO neatly solves this problem:
import io import numpy as np raw = """ # temperature, kappa, std 300,7.00000,1.03175 400,5.44444,0.76190 """ with io.StringIO(raw) as f: data = np.loadtxt(f, delimiter=",")
Being able to pretend strings are files is surprisingly useful, especially for testing file-based import/export routines!
