Useful Python scripts for working with Infodump files

  • mefipost.py -- parse Infodump post files into a dictionary
  • infodump_to_others.py -- Read the infodump files into pandas dataframes. From there, store them...
    • in memory in a dictionary.
    • On disk in an HDF5 data store.
    • As tables in a SQLite database. (Should be pretty easy to tweak for other SQL databases.)
