    what version are you using? i get an error trying to open a file with 'rw' as the mode argument. I get an error trying to truncate when opened for reading. when opened for writing i get an error trying to read it. same when opened for appending http://dpaste.com/1041878/ can you post your whole session, including the traceback?

    I am python 2.5.4. My figured out my problem. Instead of 'rw' ,try using 'w' in the open command.
