PCI – Chapter Four – Cleaning the Data

After retrieving all the movie files form Wikipedia, some cleanup was in order. I decided to remove, based on size, the files which did not point to actual movie in question. Simple file check cut down file size considerably, to a little more than 430 movie files. While this does not make for an amazing data representation of the movies in the database; it will be more than enough data for the sake of the exercises. Conveniently, this operations leaves us with only 21 mbs of textual data to work with, a third of original set retrieved.
