I'm trying to create a piece of code which joins a line that matches a string, and the next succeeding line (no matter what this line contains). I'm getting confused at what Regular Expression (RE) to use.
So far I have:
input1 = open("out.txt","r") output1 = open("outp.txt","w") with input1 as f: out = ''.join(line for line in f if any(line.startswith(word) for word in ('a)','b)','c)','d)'))) with output1 as f: f.write(out) output1.close()
So, I want to select a line that starts with a) and the next line (so in this example, 123):
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
