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])


Traceback (most recent call last):
File "csv.py", line 1, in <module>
import csv
File "/home/treehouse/workspace/csv.py", line 11, in <module>
data_from_csv = open_with_csv('data.csv')
File "/home/treehouse/workspace/csv.py", line 6, in open_with_csv
tie_reader = csv.reader(tsvin, delimiter=d)
