Functions to read from CSV or XLS(X) files interchangeably

Project description

Two functions to aid in reading CSV and XLS/XLSX files interchangeably, while respecting Unicode.

read_csv_or_xls does its best to read its data argument (should be bytes) as an Excel file. If it fails, it tries to decode it as UTF-8. If you hand it a (Unicode) string, it’ll just return it.

utf8_reader gives you a CSV reader (like the csv library’s) which decodes its argument as UTF-8; the generator yields Unicode strings.
