Version 0.5.0 of asciitable, an extensible module for reading and writing ASCII tables, is now available. This release features a new function to guess the table format from the supported formats within asciitable. This function is now called by default within asciitable.read().
Other updates include:
- Added support for whitespace (tab or space) delimited tables by setting
the delimiter parameter to "\s".
- Improved support for RDB tables by parsing the second line which specifies
column type and (optionally) width. These values are written out if
available when writing an RDB table.
- More rigorous checking of format compatibility for several table formats.
