There are multiple ways to use
dta either as a tool to pipe data into or as one to read directly from file. What
dta does not do is transform data, parsing options are purely as a means of pulling the date field from a structured format (For transforming data please see

*WIP **Flatten a timestamp to a certain level, ie. 2021-01-01 12:01:02 to hour returns 12:01:02
dta has several features when being used as a library including:
- csv, a feature enabling the parsing of CSV data.
- json, a feature enabling the parsing of JSON data.
