Is there a way to delete every n bytes from one point to the first byte? This s quite confusing. What I've done:

a = open("file.txt","r")
b = a.read()
a.close()

findit = "WIN - PLACE"
texto = b.find(findit)

And now I need to delete everything before "WIN - PLACE", its like 20 lines that i have to delete. Any ideas? Thanks
