http://code.google.com/p/arff/

http://code.google.com/p/arff/wiki/Documentation

Usage:

>>> import arff
>>> for row in arff.load('example.arff'):
... print(row.hair_color)
... print(row[-1])
...
>>> print(list(arff.load('example.arff')))
[[Row(hair_color='blonde', age=17.2, patno=1),
Row(hair_color='blue', age=27.2, patno=2),
Row(hair_color='blue', age=18.2, patno=3)]



Where this is the example file:

@relation diabetics_data
@attribute hair_color {blonde, black, blue}
@attribute age real
@attribute patno integer
@data
blonde, 17.2, 1
blue, 27.2, 2
blue, 18.2, 3

-----
>>> data = [[1,2,'a'], [3, 4, 'john']]
>>> arff.dump('result.arff', data, relation="whatever", names=['num', 'day', 'title'])

results in the creation of this file:

@relation whatever
@attribute num integer
@attribute day integer
@attribute title string
@data
1,2,'a'
3,4,'john'


-----
