I came across this short snippet of code to jump to a specific line (11 in this case) in a text file:
with open('mytextfile.txt') as f: for i in range(10): f, next(f) for line in f: print(line)
And it works great but I am totally clueless what the line
is doing. I didn’t even know it was possible to reference the file object without doing anything to it! What is going on here? I am much more used to doing something like this:
with open('anothertextfile.txt', 'r') as fileobj: for row in fileobj: print(row)
where fileobj is the entire file, is it not? So how is “f, next(f)” being used in the preceding example?
Cheers for any help
