Hi all - hope you are well. I am trying to print out only the first 15 characters of each line of a text file. The trouble is I am not sure how I would go about doing such a thing! Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time!
def lab01(): file = open('blah.txt','r')#specify file to open data = file.readlines() #read lines in file and put into LIST called data file.close() #good practice to close files after use print "Last line = " tail = data[len(data)-1]#-1 represents last item on list data, load this into VAR tail print tail print "First line = " header = data#0 represents first item on list data, load this into VAR header print header del data print "first line removed from LIST data, second line is now first " #~ print data # will print out line 2 (now line 1) because line 1 had been removed #from list data. del data[len(data)-1] print "Final line removed from LIST data, penultimate line is now final"
