  • Wraps csv, xlrd, plus several XML parsers into a single, unified "workbook" structure to make applications that work with any of the common physical formats.
  • Extends the "workbook" to include fixed format files (with no delimiters) and even COBOL files in EBCDIC.
  • Provides a uniform way to load and use schema information. This can be header rows in the individual sheets of a workbook, or it can be separate schema information.
  • Provides a suite of data conversions that cover the most common cases.
  • Parses COBOL DDE definitions to create a schema for processing COBOL files.
