I am asking Python to print the minimum number from a column of CSV data, but the top row is the column number, and I don’t want Python to take the top row into account. How can I make sure Python ignores the first line?
This is the code so far:
import csv with open('all16.csv', 'rb') as inf: incsv = csv.reader(inf) column = 1 datatype = float data = (datatype(column) for row in incsv) least_value = min(data) print least_value
Could you also explain what you are doing, not just give the code? I am very very new to Python and would like to make sure I understand everything.
