Do you have a link to the code? Or better still, if it is short (say 
under fifty lines) can you copy it into an email and send it?

"stipulation", as in:

    That which is stipulated, or agreed upon; that which is

The only thing I can guess without seeing the code is that MAYBE txt is 
an open file, and txt.read() reads the content of the file.
