Okay, so I’m going through Zed Shaw’s program, and I am trying to create a file, then open it. I succeeded in doing the exercise, but I can’t get the study drill. This is the exercise:
from sys import argv
script, filename = argv
print “We’re going to erase %r.” % filename
print "If you don’t want that, hit CTRL-C (C^)."
print “If you do want that, hit RETURN.”
print "Opening the file…"
target = open(filename, ‘w’)
print "Truncating the file. Goodbye!"
print “Now I’m going to ask you for three lines.”
line1 = raw_input("line 1: ")
line2 = raw_input("line 2: ")
line3 = raw_input("line 3: ")
print “I’m going to write these to the file.”
print "And finally, we close it."
From this, I’m supposed to create a way to open the file from within the script, but I can’t seem to figure out how to do this. I feel that I understand what every line is doing, but I am about ready to give up on this drill.
