How to Check Column Nulls and Replace: Pandas

Here is a post that shows how to count Nulls and replace them with the value you want in the Pandas Dataframe. We have explained the process in two steps - Counting and Replacing the Null values. Count null values (column-wise) in Pandas ## count null values column-wise null_counts = df.isnull(). sum() print(null_counts) ``` Output: ``` Column1    1 Column2    1 Column3    5 dtype: int64 ``` In the above code, we first create a sample Pandas DataFrame `df` with some null values. Then, we use the `isnull()` function to create a DataFrame of the same shape as `df`, where each element is a boolean value indicating whether that element is null or not. Finally, we use the `sum()` function to count the number of null values in each column of the resulting DataFrame. The output shows the count of null values column-wise. to count null values column-wise: ``` df.isnull().sum() ``` ##Code snippet to count null values row-wise: ``` df.isnull().sum(axis=1) ``` In the above code, `df` is the Panda

6 Python file Methods Real Usage

Files always have data in them. For different purposes, you need methods to deal with them. These six file methods of use in this case. Related:  5 top file modes in python. Python file methods Below are the top six file methods in python: Tell() Seek() Flush() Fileno() truncate() isatty() 1. tell() The usage of tell method is it  returns the cursor-position of the file-pointer from the beginning of the file. It tells the current cursor position. The position starts from zero, which is same as of an index. Syntax:  fileobject.tell() 2. seek() The usage of seek  method is cursor position, from one position to the specified position from the beginning of the file, it moves. Here, the cursor will be sought to a particular location. Syntax: 3. flush() The usage of flush  method is clean out the internal buffer. Before writing the text in the file, it is best practice to clear out that the internal buffer can be cleared. Syntax:  fileobject.flush() 4. fileno() The
