Python File I/O: Exercise-5 with Solution

Write a Python program to read a file line by line and store it into a list.

Sample Solution:-

Python Code:

def file_read(fname):
        with open(fname) as f:
                #Content_list is the list that contains the read lines.     
                content_list = f.readlines()
                print(content_list)

file_read(\'test.txt\')

def file_read(fname):
        with open(fname) as f:
                #Content_list is the list that contains the read lines.     
                content_list = f.readlines()
                print(content_list)
