Reading rows of a CSV file

 
0
 

hi,

I just came accross the csv module to deals with csv files in python.

suppose my csv file has two rows:

1,2,3,4
5,6,7,8

and i want to access each item at a time, i.e., 1 followed by 2 and so on....what can be done?

import csv
reader= csv.reader(open('filename.csv','r'),delimiter=' ')
for row in reader:
print row

gives me
[1,2,3,4]
[5,6,7,8]

I want to access a single value at a time

1,2,3,4

i want to access 1 first followed by 2, followed by 3 and so on....

I know there must be something pretty simple, but it's blocking me, need help :)

As list in python
So is array in c,c++

They are all the same stuff with different names. :)
