pandas.read_msgpack(path_or_buf, encoding='utf-8', iterator=False, **kwargs)[source]

Load msgpack pandas object from the specified file path.

Deprecated since version 0.25.0.

read_msgpack is deprecated and will be removed in a future version. It is recommended to use pyarrow for on-the-wire transmission of pandas objects.

path_or_buf : str, path object or file-like object

Any valid string path is acceptable. The string could be a URL. Valid URL schemes include http, ftp, s3, and file. For file URLs, a host is expected.

If you want to pass in a path object, pandas accepts any os.PathLike.

By file-like object, we refer to objects with a read() method, such as a file handler (e.g. via builtin open function) or StringIO.

encoding : Encoding for decoding msgpack str type
iterator : boolean, if True, return an iterator to the unpacker

(default is False)

obj : same type as object stored in file


read_msgpack is only guaranteed to be backwards compatible to pandas 0.20.3.
