skbio.io.util.open_file

skbio.io.util.open_file(file, **kwargs)[source]

Context manager for skbio.io.util.open().

State: Stable as of 0.4.0.

The signature matches open(). This context manager will not close filehandles that it did not create itself.

Examples

Here our input isn’t a filehandle and so f will get closed.

>>> with open_file(['a\n']) as f:
...     f.read()
...
'a\n'
>>> f.closed
True

Here we provide an open file and so f will not get closed and neither will file.

>>> file = io.BytesIO(b'BZh91AY&SY\x03\x89\x0c\xa6\x00\x00\x01\xc1\x00\x00'
...                   b'\x108\x00 \x00!\x9ah3M\x1c\xb7\x8b\xb9"\x9c(H\x01'
...                   b'\xc4\x86S\x00')
>>> with open_file(file) as f:
...     f.read()
...
'a\nb\nc\n'
>>> f.closed
False
>>> file.closed
False
