[Numpy-discussion] what python module to handle csv?

I am a huge fan of rec2csv and csv2rec, which might not technically be part of numpy, and can be found in pylab or the matplotlib.mlab module.

Using savetxt with delimiter=',' should do the trick.

If you want a more advanced csv interface to e.g. save more than a numpy array into a single csv, you can probably look into the python csv module.

Dear all pythoners,

what do you use python module to handle csv file (for reading we can use numpy.genfromtxt)? is there anyone we can do with csv file very convinient as that in R?
can numpy.genfromtxt be used as writing? (I didn't try this yet because on our server we have only numpy 1.0.1...). This really make me struggling since csv is a very
important interface file (I think so...).

Thanks a lot,
