transforming list

hi,

i have a list from a resultset like this
1,"Chicago Bulls",,,""
2,"Cleveland Caveliers",,,""
4,"Detroit Pistons",1,"23686386.35"
4,"Detroit Pistons",2,"21773898.07"
4,"Detroit Pistons",3,"12815215.57"
4,"Detroit Pistons",4,"48522347.76"
4,"Detroit Pistons",5,"28128425.99"
4,"Detroit Pistons",6,"15681603.08"
4,"Detroit Pistons",8,"12627725.03"
4,"Detroit Pistons",9,"11417.00"
4,"Detroit Pistons",10,"945689.22"
4,"Detroit Pistons",11,"818246.57"
4,"Detroit Pistons",12,"1154292.77"
5,"Phoenix Suns",1,"23211445.97"
5,"Phoenix Suns",3,"11268469.53"
5,"Phoenix Suns",4,"49913569.61"
5,"Phoenix Suns",5,"26035236.09"
5,"Phoenix Suns",7,"113953310.50"
5,"Phoenix Suns",8,"17091769.84"
5,"Phoenix Suns",10,"818569.99"
5,"Phoenix Suns",11,"824602.19"
5,"Phoenix Suns",12,"1142018.11"

and I wish to transform it into something like this

1, "Chicago Bulls", 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0
2, "Cleveland Caveliers", 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0
4, "Detroit Pistons", 23686386.35, 21773898.07, 12815215.57,
48522347.76, 28128425.99, 15681603.08, 0, 12627725.03, 11417.00,
945689.22, 818246.57, 1154292.77
5, "Phoenix Suns", 23211445.97, 0, 11268469.53, 499113569.61,
26035236.09, 0, 113953310.50, 17091769.84, 0, 818569.99, 824602.19,
1142018.11

currently my solution is something like this the rows is the original
list which is list of list ... the report is a list of list with the
new arrangement that I want.

report = []
report_item = None
temp_c_id = 0
for row in rows:
if not row[0] == temp_c_id:
temp_c_id = row[0]
if report_item: report.append(report_item)
report_item = [row[0], row[1], 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0,
0, 0, 0, 0]
if row[2]:
report_item[row[2]+1] = row[3]

I feel this solution is not that good, can I make this more pythonic?!

Thanks
james :)

0, 0, 0, 0]
if row[2]:
report_item[row[2]+1] = row[3]
This doesn't print the last row (5, "Phoenix Suns", ...); you need one
more append outside the loop (if report_item:
report.append(report_item)).
I feel this solution is not that good, can I make this more pythonic?!
Sure; get familiar with a swiss-knife module, itertools, and in
particular for this task, groupby:
from operator import itemgetter
from itertools import groupby, chain

def group_roster(rows, num_stats=12):
# group the rows by their first two elements
# Caveat: the rows should already be sorted by
# the same key
for key,group in groupby(rows, itemgetter(0,1)):
stats = [0.0] * num_stats
for row in group:
if row[2]: stats[int(row[2])-1] = float(row[3])
yield list(chain(key,stats))

if __name__ == '__main__':
import csv
for row in group_roster(csv.reader(open('roster.txt'))):
print row

hi james,
this is one implementation using python dictionaries.

report ={}
for row in data:
if not row[0] in report:
report[row[0]] = [row[0], row[1], 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0,
0, 0, 0]
if row[2]:
report[row[0]][row[2]+1] = row[3]
reports = report.values()

regards,
Sandip More

I'd use:
if row[0] not in report:
report[row[0]] = [row[0], row[1], 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0,
0, 0, 0]
if row[2]:
report[row[0]][row[2]+1] = row[3]
reports = report.values()
or even:
report ={}
for code, team, game, bet in data:
if code not in report:
report[code] = [code, team, 0, 0, 0, 0,
0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0]
else:
assert report[code][1] == team
if game:
report[code][game + 1] = bet
reports = report.values()
