I need to find a way to change the characters in the file that are integers into the variable that is inputted. Then, I need to have the program re-loop so that the user can re-change the variable as needed.
@TheFlooBearer sorry for the late reply but here is a sample snippet
1 2 filename = 'test.txt' # edit filename here 3 outputfile = filename # output overwrites original file 4 5 lines = open(filename).read().splitlines() # put all lines in file into an 6 array 7 for i in range(len(lines)): # loop through the array 8 if lines[i] == "3": # if current line has a 3 9 lines[i] = "9999" # replace it with 9999 10 11 open(outputfile,'w').write('\n'.join(lines)) # write output
If you want to reloop, then wrap lines 4 thru 11 into a while loop (or for loop)
