CSV headers and time conversion

Hi,

So maybe I spoke too soon when I said I had the csv part of this
handled.
I’ve read the FasterCSV docs and, for the life of me, can’t figure out
how
to return values by header. Here’s the script:

require ‘rubygems’
require ‘fastercsv’

a=FasterCSV.table("/Users/ron/snlusgam.csv").by_col

b=a.[‘header_name’]

puts b

I know this isn’t right, but I can’t seem to find in the documentation
how
to return an array of values from a particular column header.

Has anybody done this?

Thanks,

Ron

No worries, we’ll fix you up…

By default, table() converts field names to Symbols for super easy
access.

Hope that helps.
