I would like to write to and read from a file from python. I wanted to use the file to save input to the program in a list. I have been looking around and there seems to be several ways to go about it. I tried pickling, but am having an issue with it. What would be the correct way to accomplish this? I have tried several ways, but to no avail. I get no error msg. but the list isn't retaining the info. Is pickling even the best way to do it.

file1 = open("ArtyKlikes.p", "ab")  # likesList
file2 = open("ArtyDislikes.p", "ab")  # dislikes

pickle.dump(likesList, file1)
pickle.dump(dislikeList, file2)


Any help would be greatly appreciated.
