Sorry bob, that's what comes of posting my question last thing at night when 
finding the way upstairs is difficult enough.

In perl I can write this:

@array = <>;
print @array;

If I save that and call it from the command line, I can include the name of a 
file after the script name. It will read in the file, putting each line into an 
element of the array.

I know how to open a specific file using Python. I wanted to know how to give 
a Python script a file name in the command line, and have it open that file.
