Let's say I have a text file separated by tabs containing stuff like:
1.02 \t hello \t 01/02/2008
How do I get python to recognise that 1.02 is a number, hello is a string and 01/02/2008 is a date.
The file has no pattern, i.e it won't always be number,string,date, it could be anything.
I'm thinking perhaps using regular expressions or something.
Waiting your earliest reply. Sample code would be great.
