Anyone got good tutorial recommendations for using python (and it seems pandas) to parse, re-arrange, and retool csv files. At the moment I'm looking for a good way to:

1) Add a header name to the only column containing data *without* also having a header name

2) Delete columns without having to explicitly name all the header names I'd like to remove.

3) Learn more about this in general.

Resources/recommendations appreciated as I begin this particular journey.

On gender-neutral language (quoted by permission):

“At least in Brazil, we've been promoting gender-neutrality in language through the use of the @ symbol. It works
for us because many feminine words end in a, and corresponding masculine ones end in o, like pata/pato for duck. Since there's no neutral or genderless form for duck in Portuguese, we'd write pat@ instead of the more traditional form pato(a) that still makes the feminine variant second class.” — Alexandre Oliva
