Post your question to a community of 469,352 developers. It's quick & easy.

file descriptors & fdopen

Why does os.fdopen('foo.txt', 'w') require an integer?
Ultimately, I want to create a new file on disk.

Funny, I can't seem to suss-out how to create a new file without
to os.system('touch foo.txt'). ... Or maybe not so funny ...
foo = os.fdopen('foo.txt', 'w')

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<stdin>", line 1, in ?
TypeError: an integer is required
Thanks in advance!
