For 2021 - online Python 3 training - see ((here)).

Our plans were to retire in summer 2020 and see the world, but Coronavirus has lead us into a lot of lockdown programming in Python 3 and PHP 7.
We can now offer tailored online training - small groups, real tutors - works really well for groups of 4 to 14 delegates. Anywhere in the world; course language English.

Please ask about private 'maintenance' training for Python 2, Tcl, Perl, PHP, Lua, etc.
reading a file

Posted by priyadharshini (priyadharshini), 31 July 2008

  I wrote a tcl script to read file. This is the snitppet.

set in [open "opalIpTbl.txt" "r"]
seek $in 0 start
while { [gets $in line] != -1 } {
gets $in line
puts $line

  It doesn't read the first 3 lines. Whats the mistake in it?

Thank you,

You don't need to seek, but yiou do need a } on the end.  As to why these errors cause it to skip 3 lines, I don't know.
