I have a FOR loop list consisting of 15 rows. But how can I make this FOR loop list stop at row 5?
# http://www.doughellmann.com/PyMOTW/itertools/index.html#module-itertools from itertools import islice, count j = 1 lines = open('machines.txt', 'r').readlines() # while (j > 0): for line in lines: print '%2s %s' % (j, line) j = j+1
I tried Doug Hellmann's islice() example but couldn't figure out how to integrate this into my code?
from itertools import * print 'Stop at 5:' for i in islice(count(), 5): print i
