Reading a Simple Text File with Python

Here’s a script to read the contents of a text file.

from sys import argv

script, filename = argv

#open the file and read contents
txt = open(filename)
print txt.read()

print "Read the file again?"
file_again = raw_input("> ")
txt_again = open(file_again)
print txt_again.read()
