If I have a text file called suits.txt


The numbers after the nameA identify what the person can do.  For
instance, 1=Run, 2=Walk etc.

I need to read the file, then access each name (nameA, nameB...) and
then use the numbers to identify what they can do.


nameA can 'run'(1), 'walk'(2), 'skip'(3), 'talk'(4)
nameB can 'run'(1), 'walk'(2), but can't ship or talk due to the
variable being 0's.


Clarification of Question by macca1111-ga on 18 Oct 2006 00:25 PDT
I was thinking that maybe it would be better to load the data into a Dictionary.

That way I only need to access one variable ie the dictionary name and
then the name can be the locator...  I could then take each number
after the name for my calculations etc.

Would anyone know how to load the data into a Dictionary and then be
able to print the name and manipulate each number after wards.

Hope this is clear.

For example is the dictionary has a name then 4 numbers after it
{'macca ga':1,2,3,4} how would I readthe data into the dictionary and
then have access to them???
