How import CVS into pandas with colon/tab/semicolon separator Delimiter
This video is will explain you how pandas read_csv functions Delimiter and separato(sep) parameter will work.

As we know CSV stands for comma separated value. File is a delimited text file that uses a comma to separate values. Each line of the file is a data record. Each record consists of one or more fields, separated by commas. The use of the comma as a field separator is the source of the name for this file format. A CSV file typically stores tabular data (numbers and text) in plain text, in which case each line will have the same number of fields.

/”CSV/” also denotes some closely related delimiter-separated formats that use different field delimiters, for example, semicolons. These include tab-separated values and space-separated values. A delimiter that is not present in the field data (such as tab) keeps the format parsing simple and all this scenario pandas delimiter function is useful.

when CSV file uses non standard character as column separator means any character apart from comma we can use pandas.read_csv(filepath.csv,delimiter ‘:’) function

Pandas.read_csv() function is having /”sep/” parameter which is identical to delimiter.
