does "Tie" have a meaning?

in the code below, does "tie" have a meaning?

def open_with_csv(filename, d='\t'): data = [] with open(filename, encoding='utf-8') as tsvin: tie_reader = csv.reader(tsvin, delimiter = d)
for line in tie_reader: data.append(line) return data

The data contains information about actual ties so it is just a description for the data being read.
