If you don't want to make them from scratch, Tkinter has some built-in file
browsers that work quite well.  Try this:

>>>import tkFileDialog
>>>file=tkFileDialog.askopenfilename(filetypes=[("My Text Files", "*.txt"),
("All Files","*")])

The variable "file" holds the file name.  The function should return None
if cancel was hit.  Also, if you look in the tkFileDialog.py source, it
shows how to set a default file name, change the window's title, and other
things.  There's also a tkFileDialog.asksaveasfilename function.
