Hi Everyone:

Why is open not defined in the following code:NameError: name 'open' is not defined

Code reads as follows:

fname = raw_input("Enter file name: ")
if len(fname) < 1 : fname = "mbox-short.txt"
fh = open(fname)
count = 0
for line in fh:
    if not line.startswith('From'): continue
    line2 = line.strip()
    line3 = line2.split()
    line4 = line3[1]
    print line4
    count = count + 1            
print "There were", count, "lines in the file with From as the first word"
