I’ve learned a number of useful things from the Google learn Python video series. One of the tips I got to use today. That tip was Python’s ability to read a file into a string:
this is a test file of words
>>> f = open("foo","r") >>> string = f.read() >>> string 'this is a test file of words '
This has a few interesting uses, and I plan to put this to use this weekend when I finish up a Python project I’m working on. I really, really dig Python. It’s quite swell. :)
