Please example this code ,I am getting it. What is the aim of writing this code? what output do we expect?

1 Answer

check out this code (the output of the code may be different but the aim of the code is to filter the search_term):

from s2v5 import * def pattern_match(list,search_term): array = [] for row in list: if search_term in row[7]: array.append(row[1]) return array

reader = pattern_match(my_csv, b'cashmere') print(reader)

above code filters out the 'search_term' and returns the id of the ties having that particular search in the form an array. Note here the string search_term is passed in the form a byte object, because the file is read in byte objects.
