Write lines in loop problem

Postby varikasutaja » Tue Mar 25, 2014 4:21 pm

Hi !

I have problem in Reading/Writing files part.
For example if i use these codes , everything works fine :

Code: Select all
a = input("enter something")
f = open("info.txt", "w")
f.write(a+ "\n")


Code: Select all
f = open('info.txt')
a= f.readline()

When i try to use read/write inside while loop ,then i cant make these things work :(


Code: Select all
from random import randint

f = open("info.txt", "w")
a=int(input("enter products count"))
while i<a:
     bb=int(randint(30, 150))
     if i == a:
       f.write(bb+ "\n")

in "Enter products count" line in enter random number
(bb line makes random number and while loop makes list
with as much bb-random number as i entered in a= )
I need to write every time randomly generated number (bb line) in file ,
until while loop ends.
But i cant make it work . I have tried lots of ways but always got error .

Anybody know how to find solution to write line as much times in file , as many loops i have ?

We can't help if we don't know what the error is...
Please read this to learn how to post properly: viewtopic.php?t=145

Also, a while loop is not really the tool for this job, for would be much better suited.
