[Tutor] Reading from a file

this may not be the best way to do it but it seems to work... I'm rather new
to this to.

>>> line = """"CVR",1,2"""
>>> info = line.split(',')
>>> info
['"CVR"', '1', '2']

>>> info.remove(info[len(info)-1])
>>> info
['"CVR"', '1']

I'm just removing the last item in the list.  The /012 is probably some sort
of line ending like \n?  I'm guessing.

I'm reading in from a file line by line and splitting up the information
based on commas... however, the last item in every line has an /012
attached to it... i.e.


comes out as

['"CVR"', '7', '3\012']

Just wondering how I can get rid of that \012.
