There is an import error in my code

import csv

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

data_from_csv = open_with_csv('data.csv') print(data_from_csv[0])

Returns

data_from_csv = open_with_csv('data.csv')
