I’ve been reviewing what I’ve learnt sofar in code the hardway.
I think I understand everything, except there is one thing that is bugging me as I don’t seem to understand it properly and it seems so basic.
I’ve looked online, but still not getting it - so hope someone can point me in the right direction.
I got a test.txt document with some lines of text, and I want to read line no two.
I tried with the below two versions.
I would have thought that print(openfile.readlines(2)) would give me what I want but it only reads the first line.
How do I jump to line two without making the ‘loop’ as in exercise 20?
openfile = open('test.txt', 'r') #Read only first line in test.txt print(openfile.readlines(2)) #Reads first two letters in first line, which makes sense as the 'reading head' has 'rewinded' openfile.seek(0) print(openfile.readline(2))
