i'm a newbie programmer (and to python, double trouble :) and running into issues reading and writing files. i'm successfully running the code below to manipulate and remove the first few lines of a text file. The text file (file1.txt) is approx. 329kb but when i run the code it only writes a new 5kb file (file2.txt)... so the other 300 something kb below that is missing. how can i get the full file (to file2.txt) with only the first 4 lines removed???
so confused... please help!! :)
lines = file('./simple-retrieval/file1.txt', 'r').readlines()
Thanks in advance!!!
