Reading a configuration file

Reading a configuration file

Postby frankBT » Wed Jun 29, 2016 11:52 pm

Hi Guys,
new here and new to python.
I have a configuration file of a network device and I want to print some parts of the content of that file with a python script.
I open the file with myfile = open('techsupport.txt', 'r')

but I'm not sure how to get the output from that file that includes the section of the "show version". which is more than one line of output when I did this:
Code: Select all
showversion = "show version"
for line in myfile:
    if showversion in line:
        print line

it only print the line that has show version and not the following lines.
Hopefully I am making sense and someone can help me.

We can't answer for you. How do you know which of the following lines should be printed.? Fixed number? Keyword on last line printed or on the first non-printed line?
