I'am trying to undestand how I can use the csv module in python to open a csv file in the same folder as the python script - and then create a .shp (shape file) using the shapefile module pyshp.

The csv file looks like this, but can have a couple of thousand rows of records:

1;2012-05-21;navpoint 25x;55.123654;13.456954
1;2012-05-23;navpoint 11f;55.143654;12.456954

Did you run the examples in the csv module's documentation ?

The documentation provides answers to read a csv, but not the rest....and i am too green in coding in order to solve it :/
