Re: Return lines in file that match string

P: n/a

I am new to python and could use some help with a fairly easy task. I
would like to return all lines in a file that have the string
'<coordinates>' to a list.
from __future__ import with_statement

with open('path/to/file') as f:
desired_lines = [line.strip() for line in f if "<coordinates>" in line]

For your reference, that uses the "with statement" and "list comprehensions".
It would also be advisable for you to read through the fine tutorial
