A while ago, with your help, I was able to create a code which scans a data file for names, and when a new name is found, it appends it to a list. For each entry is the list, the code then opens a new file for each entry. Using the same code, I am trying to parse huge data files, with over 100 names each. Python doesn't like to open such a large number of files and is complaining:
IOError: [Errno 24] Too many open files: '/home/hugadams/Desktop/SHANE_STUFF/Modules/Rep_Split_FULL/MER65B-int'
I was wondering if any of you knew a way to bypass this, whether it be an import or otherwise? I'd prefer to not completely restructure my code if there is a simple import that can allow python to open more files.
