(The currently packaged file version is BLZ_20120903.txt.)

This package provides a dict of the bank information, keyed by BLZ.

>>> import pyblz
>>> banks = pyblz.bank_data()
>>> len(banks)
>>> banks['64150020']
{'bic': u'SOLADES1TUB',
 'blz': u'64150020',
 'change_type': u'U',
 'checksum_type': u'01',
 'city': u'T\xfcbingen',
 'delete_type': u'0',
 'name': u'Kreissparkasse T\xfcbingen',
 'next_blz': u'00000000',

 'record_number': u'002683',
 'shortname': u'Kr Spk T\xfcbingen',
 'type': u'1',

>>> import pyblz.parse
>>> banks = pyblz.parse.parse('another-file.txt')
