Hi I was wondering if it is possible to process 2 different files with one function and store the strings/lines I'm searching for in different variables as for instance number1 for file 1 and number 2 for file 2.
the code so far:
import string Name = raw_input("Filename ") infile = open(Name, 'r') data = infile.readlines() def getdata(data): listing =  for line in data: new_line = string.split(line)[:2] listing.append(new_line) number = len(listing) items = listing def main(): number, items = getdata(data)
The problem is that I want to get number1 and itmes1 or number 2 and items2 if data = data1 or data = data2 and another problem is that I get an error message:
TypeError: 'NoneType' object is not iterable
when I call main()
Thanks for ideas,
