How to Create and Delete a file in Python?

This recipe helps you Create and Delete a file in Python

Recipe Objective

Have you tried to open, create or delete a file through python?

So this is the recipe on how we can create and Delete a file in Python.

Step 1 - Importing Library

import os

We have only imported os which is needed.

Step 2 - Creating a file

We have created a file by function .write and here we have created a text file. Them we have written a statement in the file and closed the file. with open("file.txt", "xt") as f: f.write("This is a New File. Just Created!") f.close()

Step 3 - Opening and Deleting File

We have open the file by using .read function and closed the file by .close functuion. Finally we have deleted the file by os.remove function. with open("file.txt", "rt") as f: data = f.read() f.close() print(data) os.remove("file.txt") So the output comes as

This is a New File. Just Created!

Classification - Zero to hero - Part 1
Classification is one of the basic things in ML and most of us jump to Neural networks or boosting to predict classes. But more often than not, to make the other person understand how the classification is happening, we need to use basic models like Logistic, decision trees etc. In this project we talk about you can apply various basic techniques, the maths and intuition behind them and how they paved way to bagging and boosting of the world
