Downloading the dataset

The dataset is provided in CSV, pipe-separated and JSON formats. We have found that many customers prefer the CSV format, but the CSV format is very large (nine million lines) and common programs like Excel and Numbers can't open it. To do so properly, you have to do it programmatically. For example, by using the python CSV library.
