Arrays aren't the only show in town when it comes to data.
Programming languages come with other data-arranging goodies too, and our chosen tool, Python, is no exception. In this chapter, you'll associate values with names using a data structure commonly called the hash (better known as dictionary to Python-folk). And when it comes to working with stored data, you'll read data from an external database system as well as from regular text-based files. All the world's awash with data, so turn the page and start applying your ever-expanding programming skills to some cool data-processing tasks.
