Python | Pandas TimedeltaIndex.base
  • Last Updated : 29 Dec, 2018

Python is a great language for doing data analysis, primarily because of the fantastic ecosystem of data-centric python packages. Pandas is one of those packages and makes importing and analyzing data much easier.

Pandas TimedeltaIndex.base attribute return the base object if the memory of the underlying data is shared by more than one objects.

Syntax: TimedeltaIndex.base

Return : array

Example #1: Use TimedeltaIndex.base attribute to find out the base address of the TimedeltaIndex object.






# importing pandas as pd
import pandas as pd
  
# Create the TimedeltaIndex object
tidx = pd.TimedeltaIndex(data =['1 days 02:00:00', '1 days 06:05:01.000030'])
  
# Print the TimedeltaIndex
print(tidx)
  
# Create a copy
tidx_copy = tidx

Output :

Now we want to find out the base address of these two objects




# Print the base address of original object
tidx.base
  
# Print the base address of the copied object
tidx_copy.base

Output :


As we can see in the output, the TimedeltaIndex.base attribute has returned the same base address for both the objects.
 
Example #2: Use TimedeltaIndex.base attribute to find out the base address of the TimedeltaIndex object.




# importing pandas as pd
import pandas as pd
  
# Create the TimedeltaIndex object
tidx = pd.TimedeltaIndex(data =['-1 days 2 min 3us', '1 days 06:05:01.000030',
                                                 '-1 days + 23:59:59.999999'])
  
# Print the TimedeltaIndex
print(tidx)
  
# Create a copy
tidx_copy = tidx

Output :

Now we want to find out the base address of these two objects




# Print the base address of original object
tidx.base
  
# Print the base address of the copied object
tidx_copy.base

Output :


As we can see in the output, the TimedeltaIndex.base attribute has returned the same base address for both the objects.
