2013-06-14 21:29:29 +0200 asked a question How do I multiply items within a CSV

Hi, I am trying to import a CSV file then find the product of all of the numbers within the file. The code I have used so far is:

import csv
    mylist = list(csv.reader(open(DATA+'mydata.csv','rb'),dialect='excel'))
    from numpy import prod

However, this doesn't work, I receive the following error "TypeError: cannot perform reduce with flexible type".

I think this is because of the format of how the mylist is created. This list data comes out in this format:


How do I coerce it into the format (1,2,3)?
