I'm having some trouble reading input and writing output files from the 
command line as follows:

python myfile.py < inputfile.txt > outputfile.txt

The problem is, I don't know how to get access to the inputfile.txt and 
outputfile.txt inside my code.  Normally, i'm used to using the "open" 
command but I don't want to hard code it in anymore.  FYI, i'm using Python 
on a UNIX O/S.
