This module provides an easy way to manipulate and inspect lists of data. It was designed to handle plain data types, especially the output from parsing JSON. It allows simple operations to be done on the items in parallel in a concise fashion. Many features will also work on other data types.
An extension to tarfile to allow adding files to a tarfile, without the need to write to disk first. It also allows data to be compressed as it is added to the tarfile, for large files or data that might be generated on the fly. Note that the output file object must support "seek()", hence the output must be an uncompressed tar file. Currently, only GZip is supported for compression.
A library to walk through tar archives, simplifying use by handling listing and decompression.
A library to parse arguments of numbers and number sequences, usable directly or with argparse. Allows concise representation of contiguous or non-contiguous sequences. Example: 1,5-10,40-50/5,200+100/25
