Readtable function

I am trying to use “readtable” function in Julia 1.5.0. It shows that “readtable” is not found. What to do? Kindly help me out.

I am having a problem with reading and plotting a csv file. So I wanted to use the codes:
using Pkg; Pkg.add(“DataFrames”); df = readtable().
It shows that readtable is not found. Please help me out.

Where are you seeing readtable? That function has been deprecated for a long time and it’s disappointing that it can still be found from search engines.

You want the package CSV.jl to import CSV files.

readtable was removed from DataFrames ~ 9 months ago (it was deprecated a while before that). Take a look at CSV.jl or CSVFiles.jl for loading csv files. You’ll still want DataFrames.jl as well

Thanks for the information.

Where did you read about readtable? We should fix that page so that other don’t get confused in the future.
