[Tutor] lst file

Many things could be wrong; perhaps with reading the file, or the lines, or
with printing them... Debugging usually consists of what the problem is
exactly, where it occurs.

First thing I'd look at is seeing whether the lines do get read. I would
change "print line" into "print len(line)" and see if the lines are empty,
or filled with unprintable things.

Also, what sort of file is it?
