Hello everyone i have an issue with this problem, the problem is i need to reset the count after every line in the file, i put a comment so you can see where i want to reset the count.
The program is suppose to cut each line after every specified lineLength.
def insert_newlines(string, afterEvery_char): lines =  for i in range(0, len(string), afterEvery_char): lines.append(string[i:i+afterEvery_char]) string[:afterEvery_char] #i want to reset here to the beginning of every line to start count over print('\n'.join(lines)) def main(): filename = input("Please enter the name of the file to be used: ") openFile = open(filename, 'r') file = openFile.read() lineLength = int(input("enter a number between 10 & 20: ")) while (lineLength < 10) or (lineLength > 20) : print("Invalid input, please try again...") lineLength = int(input("enter a number between 10 & 20: ")) print("\nYour file contains the following text: \n" + file + "\n\n") # Prints original File to screen print("Here is your output formated to a max of", lineLength, "characters per line: ") insert_newlines(file, lineLength) main()
Ex. If a file has 3 lines like this with each line having 20 chars
andhsytghfydhtbcndhg andhsytghfydhtbcndhg andhsytghfydhtbcndhg
after the lines are cut it should look like this
andhsytghfydhtb cndhg andhsytghfydhtb cndhg andhsytghfydhtb cndhg
i want to RESET the count after every line in the file.
