Objective

I wanted to download a list of files from an S3 bucket using python 3. I used a standard CSV in UTF-8 format. Here is an example CSV. It’s one column with just the filenames. 

I could have built out the full url in the CSV, but I decided to just do it in the code.  Below is the full python script. 

import csv
import wget
#open import file
with open("c:\\csv\\files-to-download.csv", newline='', encoding='utf-8') as f:
#Assign the import file to the DictReader "reader"    
    reader = csv.DictReader(f)
    #Now loop through all rows and build out variables    
    for row in reader:
        filename = row['name']
        print('Beginning file download with wget module')
        url = 'http://www.example.com/images/'
