  • Complete the File R/W (I/O) Exercises:
    1. Read a file with first and last names of people. Extract all their initials, such that first and last initials are combined per person (Paul Bui -> PB). Write/Output that list of initials to a file
    2. Write a program that generates a textfile with 10000 random numbers from 0-100
    3. Read a file with 10000 random numbers from 0 to 100. Print out the frequency of each of the numbers (Hint: Use a list to track the frequencies)
  • Example code to help read in a file:
# open a text file
file = open("Constitution.txt", "r")

# read all lines in the file and save in the constitution string variable
constitutionStr = file.read()

# read all lines from the file and save them to a listlist
constitutionList = file.readlines()

# close the file
file.close()

print(constitutionStr) # What does it print?  Comment this line out and uncomment the next line
#print(constitutionList)
  • Example code to help write to a file:
# open a text file
file = open("output.txt", "w")

# read all lines in the file and save in the constitution string variable
file.write("Hello!\n")
file.write("world!")

# close the file
file.close()
