I'm having a bit of trouble on the similarities project. I'm struggling to understand how to target lines inside of the file. I believe the first name would be the one given in the html part, which I have done, but I'm not sure how to go about targeting the lines. Any help would be appreciated


Your files would be named as file1 and file2. Lines sentences and substrings will be named "algorithms" and will have the values lines, sentences and substrings respectively.

Please accept this answer if it helps you.

  • This is helpful, but how can you target individual lines inside of each file for checking?

  • What exactly do you mean by "target"? A snippet of relevant code would help. Jan 12 '18 at 20:07
  • I mean how can I access the specific lines within a file, ex. go to file a line 1, run code, and then move on to the next line i choose

  • A file here is just a string. Iterate over the file till you find the character '\n' which indicates line separation. Jan 13 '18 at 8:30
