 Need help with writing to and reading from files?
I am wondering for meaning to split the line by spaces into three values and then print these string objects as they are into the line. Just print the line
"As they say in Mexico 'dosvidaniya'. That makes two vidaniyas."

That is why I have shown how to get the values back into the variables.

@birdieman How to use BBCode
The following code:
#Part 2
f = open("test.txt", "w")
your_start_age = 62
her_start_age = 61
start_year = 2017
for y in range(81):
   f.write('{}{}{}\n'.format(start_year, your_start_age, her_start_age))
   your_start_age += 1
   her_start_age += 1
   start_year += 1

#Part 3

with open("test.txt", "r") as opened_file:
   for line in opened_file:
       start_year, your_start_age, her_start_age = line.split()
       print(start_year, your_start_age, her_start_age)
gives me this error for  "...... =.split() " line
ValueError: not enough values to unpack (expected 3, got 1)
sorry for all my ignorance
f.write('{}{}{}\n'.format(start_year, your_start_age, her_start_age))
has not spaces between each {} so there is nothing to split on further down the code
change it to
f.write('{} {} {}\n'.format(startyear, yourstartage, herstartage))
as shown in earlier code.

Edit: Take this in mind that although I have shown how to get each value back into the variables, the values are still strings and not numbers, int or float could be used to convert them back depending on what type of numbers are needed.
works perfect -- thanks to all of you
