I am trying to perform a simple task of opening a shapefile, then updating some values seen in the attribute table, then saving said shapefile. I seem to not be grasping the saving aspect, yet this seems like it should be completely straight forward. However, I am not really finding documentation that lists the function call, or the way to perform this. I imagine the solution is simple. Is there anyone who has an answer for this? It would be much appreciated.
