objects very easily with Python standard functionality, referred to in
Python terms as "pickling". See the "pickle" module for more
Thank you Walter for your help and speedy reply.
Using pickling I have somehow managed to save two separate lists, but the dictionary is giving me much more of a struggle.
I will reference the link you were gracious enough to provide me. Hopefully a few pots of coffee and my last few remaining brain cells will get me through it.
PS the last few times i had attempted reading the docs on the python site, well, I might as well have been reading a book in ancient Sanskrit.
But if at first you don't succeed,try, try, try, again.
Have a great day.
