ASCII Tables ( provides methods for reading and writing a wide range of ASCII data table formats via built-in Extension Reader classes. The emphasis is on flexibility and ease of use, although readers can optionally use a less flexible C/Cython engine for reading and writing for improved performance.

The following shows a few of the ASCII formats that are available, while the section on Supported formats contains the full list.

Basic: basic table with customizable delimiters and header configurations
Cds: CDS format table (also Vizier and ApJ machine readable tables)
Daophot: table from the IRAF DAOphot package
Ecsv: ECSV format for lossless round-trip of data tables
FixedWidth: table with fixed-width columns (see also Fixed-width Gallery)
Ipac: IPAC format table
HTML: HTML format table contained in a <table> tag
Latex: LaTeX table with datavalue in the tabular environment
Rdb: tab-separated values with an extra line after the column definition line
SExtractor: SExtractor format table
