I have previously written about how to read and write JSON files in R and Racket. In re-reading that old post, I’m struck by how it shows me tinkering without understanding.

In learning about reading CSV files in Racket, I have started to reconsider whether storing small(ish) datasets in CSV files is the best default behavior.1 My default was set by primarily working in R, where reading and writing CSV files plays a central role in data analysis.
In a previous post, I wrote about reading and writing data to file while retaining the structure and attributes of the data (i.e., data serialization). However, I more commonly pass data around as text files (usually, CSV files).
