I would like to set up range of reading by shapefile.Reader. I couldn't find any suitable documentation. I would like to read rows 0-100. In Pandas or GeoPandas I use df.iloc[0:100], but what should I use here?

Code:

with shapefile.Reader(shapefile_path) as shp:
    total_rows = shp.numRecords
    for row_num, row in enumerate(shp.iterRecords()):
        print(row)
9

A generator is not subscriptable and iterRecords() returns a generator. Instead, use shapeRecords() (or records()). It gives you a list.

rows = shapefile.Reader(shapefile_path).shapeRecords()[0:100]

for row_num, row in enumerate(rows):
    print(row_num, row)
3

I have found the solution:

with shapefile.Reader(shapefile_path) as shp:
        total_rows = shp.numRecords
        for row_num, row in enumerate(shp.iterRecords()):
            if row_num < 0:
                pass
            elif row_num > 100:
                break
