More object oriented: fields = line.split()

You mean the fields list.

Iterate over all elements in the fields list (in every iteration the next
element will be assigned to the field variable). For every iteration,
write '|', concatenated with the current field.
I used 'write', because 'print' added a newline. More object oriented and
Python-like would be something like the solution from Matt:
The argument within the 'join' method call is a list. 'lastNumber' is
packed in a list by surrounding it with  and this list is concatenated
with the fields list. The result list is passed to the join-method. This
is a method of the String class. The method is called on the '|' instance
of the string class, which joins the elements of the list and adds the
string itself between the elements.
