More specifically, Joe, where and what types of errors are you getting?
When I type in your example exactly as above I get the following:
>>>from decimal import *
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<interactive input>", line 1, in ?
NameError: name 'decimal' is not defined
That error appears because you've imported all of the decimal functions into
the global namespace and you're trying to reference a value in the decimal
namespace. In your example it'd have to look like this to work:
the lack of decimal in front of ROUND_DOWN
Or is the problem that you're not able to read and parse the text file
