I'm trying to code a program that retrieves data from a seperate file but according to my program, the seperate file is empty when I know it clearly isn't. It's a txt file and here are its contents: 120
I thought that maybe the problem was the code I had written but even when I try and read from the file in an interactive session in the Python Shell, it does the same thing. I open it in read mode and assign to a variable like so: scoresFile=open('highScores.txt','r') But whenever I try to say read from it: scoresFile.read() It comes up with a blank string: ' ' Can anyone help me?
