Hi and thanks for all the previous answers. I am still struggling with my 
conversion program.

Here are todays questions :)

1. Is it possible to tell python to create a file (for example if specified 
file doesnt exist)? It sems possible to create a directory thrue the os 
module. But i cant find out how to create a file.

2. How can i print a list to a file? I have tried the following:

def writeListToFile(inputList, outputFile):
    a = open(outputFile, "w")
    listLength = len(inputList)
    for i in range(0,listLength):

but i get a "Type error"

inputList is list of lists (each row is list)
