The manipulator includes code for a number of common functions that you may find handy.
Here is a quick example that shows how to use filehandlers to write to a file:
from filehandlers import FileManipulator, AbstractFile # define the file my_cool_file = AbstractFile("log.txt") # create FileManipulator my_cool_files_changer = FileManipulator(my_cool_file) # write data to file 5 times for i in range(5): my_cool_files_changer.write_to_file("Message #" + i + ": " + debug_message)
