  • Read .CSV file using pandas dataframe.
  • Convert particular column to list using list() constructor
  • Then sequentially convert each element of the list to a string and join them using a specific character or space.

For our program we are going to use the following CSV file:



Code:

Python3




# importing library
import pandas as pd
  
# Then loading csv file
df = pd.read_csv('datasets/Fruit.csv')
  
# converting ;FRUIT_NAME' column into list
a = list(df['FRUIT_NAME'])
  
# converting list into string and then joining it with space
b = ' '.join(str(e) for e in a)
  
# printing result
print(b)
  
# converting 'PRICE' column into list
d = list(df['PRICE'])
  
# another way for joining used
e = '\n'.join(map(str, d))
  
# printing result
print(e)

Output:

Apple Banana JackFruit Orange Pineapple Guava Grapes Mango

100
70
30
120
90
50
80
200

# reading csv file
text = open("datasets/Fruit.csv", "r")
  
# joining with space content of text
text = ' '.join([i for i in text])  
  
# replacing ',' by space
text = text.replace(",", " ")  
  
#displaying result
print(text)
