Thanks for the help! I used the csv module to write this;
reader = csv.reader(open('testfile.txt', "rb"))
for row in reader:
print "var2= ", row
The reason I didn't use the csv module is because I read this book to learn
Python Programming for the Absolute Beginner, Second Edition (For the
by Michael Dawson (Author),
and it did not mention the csv module it just explained how to import
modules. I also read
the tutorial that comes with python but it ends with the History and License
Can you recommend a book that explains the most used modules?
