The DataTable class represents a data table consisting of tuples (rows) and fields (columns). DataTable objects are created by importing Comma Separated Values (CSV) files using the csv function:

let table = await atlas.csv("data.csv");

Atlas automatically infers the data type for each field/column, and parses the values accordingly
