pandas.api.types.is_file_like(obj)[source]ΒΆ

Check if the object is a file-like object.

For objects to be considered file-like, they must be an iterator AND have either a read and/or write method as an attribute.

Note: file-like objects must be iterable, but iterable objects need not be file-like.

Parameters
objThe object to check
Returns
is_file_likebool

Whether obj has file-like properties.

Examples

>>> import io
>>> buffer = io.StringIO("data")
>>> is_file_like(buffer)
True
>>> is_file_like([1, 2, 3])
False
