I have an html file and I am parsing it with regular expressions. I don't want to use any python html libraries, because I am not using it as a website, but as a configuration type file. I am making a basic bookmarks system, the parser works fine, so I guess my question is about the second part, writing to the files. The file looks like this
<html> <head> <title>my bookmarks</title> </head> <body> <div id="smalltalk"> <a href="http://www.smalltalk.org">Smalltalk.org</a> </div> <div id="python"> <a href="http://www.python.org">Python.org</a> </div> </body> </html>
My parser call the div's sections, and I want to write a method to insert more sections before the /body and /html tags.
The question, without all of my other information is, how do I INSERT text into a file with python, without deleting the text after it.
