OK, something simple. I want to write a counter for a webpage.

This means reading a file, adding one to the contents, displaying the
result, and writing that new number to the file and saving it.

Opening and closing and reading and wrigting files I grok. But I
understand python is rather odd about numbers, reading a text
expression of a number and saving same. This all seems to involve the
pickle module, but maybe not?

OK, for a minimal concversion to/from text from/to a number, what is
the method without pickle, and with?
