Files, Strings, and Dictionaries

Part of the Texts in Computational Science and Engineering book series (TCSE, volume 6)


Files are used for permanent storage of information on a computer. From previous computer experience you are hopefully used to save information to files and open the files at a later time for inspection again. The present chapter tells you how Python programs can access information in files (Chapter 6.1) and also create new files (Chapter 6.5). The chapter builds on programming concepts introduced in the first four chapters of this book.
