A question for you. I have these types of files at my work (.sj extension) that I need to work with and I'm wondering if there is a way to read from the file like a text file (the .sj files can be opened / read by notepad). The .sj files basically have a bunch of code in them which I'm extracting the comments from.
My program can currently open a .txt file and extract the comment blocks but when I change the file extension it doesn't read in the text. Any ideas? Thanks.
def readComments (textfile): comments =  inComment = False for i, line in enumerate(open(textfile.name)): if "//***" in line: inComment = not inComment elif inComment: line = line.lstrip("//") comments.append((i, line)) textfile.close() return comments
