Project Description

Python implementation of PVL (Parameter Value Language)

PVL is a markup language, similar to xml, commonly employed for entries in the Planetary Database System used by NASA to store mission data, among other uses. This package supports both encoding a decoding a superset of PVL, including the USGS Isis Cube Label and NASA PDS 3 Label dialects.

Installation

At the command line:

$ pip install pvl

Basic Usage

pvl exposes an API familiar to users of the standard library json module.

Decoding is primarily done through pvl.load for file like objects and pvl.loads for strings:

>>> import pvl
>>> module = pvl.loads("""
...     foo = bar
...     items = (1, 2, 3)
...     END
... """)
>>> print module
PVLModule([
  (u'foo', u'bar')
  (u'items', [1, 2, 3])
])
>>> print module['foo']
bar

You may also use pvl.load to read a label directly from an image:

>>> import pvl
>>> label = pvl.load('pattern.cub')
>>> print label
PVLModule([
  (u'IsisCube',
   PVLObject([
    (u'Core',
     PVLObject([
      (u'StartByte', 65537)
      (u'Format', u'Tile')
# output truncated...
>>> print label['IsisCube']['Core']['StartByte']
65537

Similarly, encoding pvl modules is done through pvl.dump and pvl.dumps:

>>> import pvl
>>> print pvl.dumps({
...     'foo': 'bar',
...     'items': [1, 2, 3]
... })
items = (1, 2, 3)
foo = bar
END

PVLModule objects may also be pragmatically built up to control the order of parameters as well as duplicate keys:

>>> import pvl
>>> module = pvl.PVLModule({'foo': 'bar'})
>>> module.append('items', [1, 2, 3])
>>> print pvl.dumps(module)
foo = bar
items = (1, 2, 3)
END

A PVLModule is a dict like container that preserves ordering as well as allows multiple values for the same key. It provides a similar similar semantics to a list of key/value tuples but with dict style access:

>>> import pvl
>>> module = pvl.PVLModule([
...     ('foo', 'bar'),
...     ('items', [1, 2, 3]),
...     ('foo', 'remember me?'),
... ])
>>> print module['foo']
bar
>>> print module.getlist('foo')
['bar', 'remember me?']
>>> print module.items()
[('foo', 'bar'), ('items', [1, 2, 3]), ('foo', u'remember me?')]
>>> print pvl.dumps(module)
foo = bar
items = (1, 2, 3)
foo = "remember me?"
END
