A utility library which repairs and analyzes tablular data

Project Description

A Python repository which repairs and analyzes tablular data


This module provides the capability to extract and repair blocks of data from 2D tables. These blocks can then be individually processed, stitched together, or filtered as needed by a particular program.

Autoconversions of cells along with a multi-tier flagging system for each magnitude of change allows for a wide variety of error handling. Additionally missing titles can be repaired from surrounding cells in order to generate compelete blocks from implied headings.
