I am a novice.
I want to replace a content with a variable
How do I do that ?
You mean something like this ...
a = 1 b = 2 c = 3 my_list = [a, b, c, a + c] # test it print my_list # [1, 2, 3, 4]
... or ...
my_list = [1, 2, 3, 4] a, b, c, d = my_list # test it print a, b, c, d # 1 2 3 4
Let me explain the case,
I have a file called AA which contains variable values as below;
I have another file called BB which contains variable values like this,
Also I have another file called CC which will be assigned some variable values as following;
I have to assign the variables in the file of AA to variable1 in the CC and assign the variables in the file of BB to variable2 in the CC.
Finally I should see as following in a file called DD
How can I do that ?
Let's create the needed data files for testing ...
# write the test data files def write_datafile(filename, data): fout = open(filename, "w") fout.write(data) fout.close() print "data written to file", filename data1 = """file1 foot1 boby""" data2 = """abc12 cba11 def123""" data3 = """Server variable1 Client variable2""" write_datafile("data1.txt", data1) write_datafile("data2.txt", data2) write_datafile("data3.txt", data3)
This may be one way you can accomplish your goal ...
# read the test data files, process, and write combined file def read_datafile(filename): """read a text file lines to a list""" fin = open(filename, "r") data_list = fin.readlines() fin.close() print filename, "has been read to data list" # process the data_list, remove trailing \n data_list = [item.rstrip() for item in data_list] return data_list def write_datafile(filename, data_list): """write the data list to a line file""" fout = open(filename, "w") fout.writelines(data_list) fout.close() print "data list written to file", filename dlist1 = read_datafile("data1.txt") dlist2 = read_datafile("data2.txt") dlist3 = read_datafile("data3.txt") # test the lists print dlist1 # ['file1', 'foot1', 'boby'] print dlist2 # ['abc12', 'cba11', 'def123'] print dlist3 # ['Server variable1', 'Client variable2'] # extract the names from dlist3 dlist3_names = [item.split() for item in dlist3] # test it ... print dlist3_names # ['Server', 'Client'] # create the final data list # note that variable1 and variable2 are fixed to dlist1 and dlist2 dlist4 =  # note dlist1 and dlist2 need to have the same length for d in range(len(dlist1)): server_string = "%s %s\n" % (dlist3_names, dlist1[d]) dlist4.append(server_string) client_string = "%s %s\n" % (dlist3_names, dlist2[d]) dlist4.append(client_string) # optional empty line dlist4.append('\n') # test it ... print dlist4 """ my beautified output ... ['Server file1\n', 'Client abc12\n', '\n', 'Server foot1\n', 'Client cba11\n', '\n', 'Server boby\n', 'Client def123\n', '\n'] """ write_datafile("data4.txt", dlist4)
Now you can look at the data4.txt file with an editor.
The values I gave as an example are a variable values. That's to say, the contains of AA and BB are variable. So They haven't fixed values.
It looks like fixed means that variable1 value has to come from dlist1 and is fixed to the Server and variable2 value comes from dlist2 and is fixed to the Client. At least that is the way I understand this.
