  • filepath_or_buffer

    Either a string indicating the location of a file, or a buffer object that has a read method.

  • target (str) – defaults to None

    Name of the target field.

  • compression – defaults to infer

    For on-the-fly decompression of on-disk data. If this is set to 'infer' and filepath_or_buffer is a path, then the decompression method is inferred for the following extensions: '.gz', '.zip'.
