This tutorial is about how to open file in python.
Syntax: open(filename, mode)
We use open () function in Python to open a file in read or write mode.
f = open("abc.txt") # open file in current directory
f = open("C:/mydocs/abc.txt") # specifying full path
Open a file by specifying a mode.
“w” is used for writing and will also create a file if it does not exist
file = open("myfile.txt", "r") # a file named myfile, will be opened in reading mode for data in file: print (data)# This will print every line one by one in the file
We can also specify encoding type when reading a file
f = open("test.txt", mode='r', encoding='utf-8')
