Python re.match() breaks Task 1
I'm doing the python Regex course. Task one is to open a file like so:
file_object = open("basics.txt")
when i do task 4 first = re.match("four", file_object) I get an error saying that i have broken task one. The code is as follows:
import re file_object = open("basics.txt") data = file_object.read() file_object.close() first = re.match("four", data)

Your code works through Task 4, if you capitalize "Four":
import re file_object = open("basics.txt") data = file_object.read() file_object.close() first = re.match("Four", data)
