.. topic:: Loading from the data files
All standard datasets which you can import with ``load_`` have underlying source files that
you can read manually (consider :func:`numpy.loadtxt` and `pandas <>`_
for analysis). The data and target can be stored in one file (e.g. iris, boston, breast_cancer) or
in several (e.g. diabetes, linnerud).
>>> from sklearn.datasets import load_boston
>>> boston = load_boston()
>>> print(boston.filename) # doctest: +SKIP
>>> from sklearn.datasets import load_diabetes
>>> diabetes = load_diabetes()
>>> print(diabetes.data_filename) # doctest: +SKIP
>>> print(diabetes.target_filename) # doctest: +SKIP
You can also read the data file directly with numpy. Consider the following example.
Boston dataset contains 2 header lines, that is why we are going to skip them::
>>> import numpy as np
>>> boston_data = np.loadtxt(boston.filename, delimiter=",", skiprows=2)
>>> # sklearn dataset
(506, 13)
>>> boston_data.shape # also contains target columns
(506, 14)
