- pyarrow.compute.struct_field(values, /, indices, *, options=None, memory_pool=None)#
Extract children of a struct or union by index.
Given a list of indices (passed via StructFieldOptions), extract the child array or scalar with the given child index, recursively.
For union inputs, nulls are emitted for union values that reference a different child than specified. Also, the indices are always in physical order, not logical type codes - for example, the first child is always index 0.
An empty list of indices returns the argument unchanged.
- valuesArray-like or scalar-like
Argument to compute function.
List of indices for chained field lookup, for example [4, 1] will look up the second nested field in the fifth outer field.
Alternative way of passing options.
If not passed, will allocate memory from the default memory pool.
