Python Sheepsheet: Opening and reading a text file.

Next on the list of simple stuff not to forget: Opening and reading a text file.

Matasano Set 1, Challenge 4 includes a text file to read from. The most Pythonic way to read the list from the text file I have found was excellently simple:

f = open( “filepath” )
filedata = list( f )

Wow, was that easy. I gotta remember that one. Oh right, I’ll write about it.
