Wow, thanks for link! I will use it as hard proof to lure some of my
friends in using Python! ;-)
This is a little off-topic, but I wish to know how would you turn a
string (or data from a text-file) into an array? For example, maybe
turn each \n into an array.
So a string like:
"This is line 1
This is line 2
This is line 3"
And so when you read that into a list called text text would the
"This is line 1".
Thank you once again.
