Hey guys, lately i've been having some trouble with file I/O but usually i don't heres an example of reading a file:

print "\nReading..."
                    myfile = open('myfile.txt', 'r').read()
                    print "\n",myfile

but is there and easier way to do that because when i try to run the program just stops, it didn't do that a couple hours ago when i first started writing the program, so any suggestions? thanks

sorry didn't notice that when i posted it heres it again with correct indentations:

myfile = open('myfile.txt', 'r').read()
                    print "\n",myfile

Assuming that myfile.txt exists, this should work just fine. Works for me.

myfile = open('myfile.txt', 'r').read()
print "\n", myfile

yeah it was working for me but i must of done something in my code think you could take a look?
