Yep. I'd be inclined to rename file_open to something that says what
the file _is_, and you may want to look into the 'with' statement to
guarantee timely closure of the file, but that's a way to do it.

Also, as has already been mentioned: keeping your data files in the
Python binaries directory isn't usually a good idea. More common to
keep them in the same directory as your script, which would mean that
you don't need a path on it at all.
