I am going through a tutorial and have come to opening a file. I'm running it
in Command Prompt, but I know there is no problem with that because I have been running
code in it without problems.

Here is the code I'm supposed to be typing:

f = open('newfile.txt','r+')

Yep, one line! But I'm getting this error: "No such file or directory". I do not have a
file there, but I thought you created a file with the same code?
What am I doing wrong?

Reading does not create file, only writing does:

>>> f = open('newfile.txt','w+')
>>> import os
>>> print([ n for n in os.listdir('.') if n.startswith('new')])
['newfile.txt', 'new_top95_s.txt']
>>>

You have to run kode in same folder as 'newfile.txt' or you have to give correct path.

f = open('c:/somefolder/newfile.txt','r+')

I do not have a
file there, but I thought you created a file with the same code?

Or as tony mention read(r) dos not create a new file only write(w) dos that.
