  • CommentedHeader: column names given in a line that begins with the comment character
  • Daophot: table from the IRAF DAOphot package
  • FixedWidth: table with fixed-width columns
  • Ipac: IPAC format table
  • Latex: LaTeX tables (plain and AASTex)
  • Memory: table already in memory (list of lists, dict of lists, etc)
  • NoHeader: basic table with no header where columns are auto-named
  • Rdb: tab-separated values with a column types line after the column names line
  • Tab: tab-separated values

This is the last major release of the asciitable package:

The asciitable package was moved into the Astropy project as astropy.io.ascii. This sub-package is being actively developed and contains many new features and bug fixes. Users are encouraged to migrate to astropy.io.ascii.
