I have 50 files, all in the same sort of format, which I would like to read into arrays in python.
The files look like this: xa "\t" xb "\" trapX "\t" ext "\t" absolute : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : N N N N N There is a title line and then all other entries are doubles, separated by a tab delimeter So what I want is an array for each of the entries in the file, like:
xa[0-N] xb[0-N] trapX[0-N] and so forth the entreis should ideadlly be numpy duoubles. The N, ie number of rows in each file may vary, but there is the same amount of data for each observable. Files have names as: file.1.dat, file.2.dat etc
What is the best way of extracting the data out of these files? This will have to be done in python.
