Previously, I posted on how to forward fill missing data in columns of data in R and Excel. I just figured out how to do this in Python, and was blown away. Ready?
data = Series(['A','B','C','D','E','F'], index = [0,2,5,7,12,14])
Done! It's as simple as telling Python, "Hey I want to reindex the 15 items (0-14) with a forward-fill method". And Python responds, "Done".
Me: "OK, Jump!"
Python: "How high?"
Also, I should mention that "method='bfill'" is... you guessed it... a backwards fill method. Enjoy.
ps- I think that the more I post about Python, the shorter my posts will be. (Thanks to the simplicity of Python).
