This post introduces how to read file from line 2 in Python.
- method 1:
with open(fname) as f: next(f) for line in f: #do something
Note: If you need the header later, instead of next(f) use f.readline() and store it as a variable.
Or use header_line = next(f).
- method 2
f = open(fname,'r') lines = f.readlines()[1:] f.close()
This will skip 1 line. for example, [‘a’, ‘b’, ‘c’][1:] => [‘b’, ‘c’]
