read() on tempfile

from tempfile import *

f = NamedTemporaryFile ()
f = write ( 'test' )
print f.read () #here print nothing

why is it nothing to read()?
I suppose f is of mode 'w+'

the rpoblem is probably that your file pointer is sitting at the end of the
file after you write something
try f.seek(0) before you read, might work

Strange, it should raise an Exception.
I guess you typed it over?

'write' should give a NameError. You want to do f.write, not f=write.
After that, you first want to seek to 0.
