7/9 : Why did the code work well here, without writing something in the txt file?


In the previous two exercises, due to a bug, we had to 'activate' the text file by writing something.
the same should happen in this one. is there any other reason than this being without a bug ?


That's some misconfiguration on Codecademy's end, nothing to do with Python itself. (Not 100% sure if that's what you're asking)
