There’s an error when running the code for the first step and I can’t continue with the lesson. The data from the pickle “spam_data.p” can’t be read. It shows this message:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File “script.py”, line 1, in
from spam_data import training_spam_docs, training_doc_tokens, training_labels, test_labels, test_spam_docs, training_docs, test_docs
File “/home/ccuser/workspace/bow-using-bow-functions/spam_data.py”, line 3, in
training_spam_docs, training_doc_tokens, training_labels, test_labels, test_spam_docs, raw_test_clean, raw_training_clean = pickle.load(open(“spam_data.p”, “rb”))
_pickle.UnpicklingError: invalid load key, ‘\xef’.

Please, can someone check the file for an error or corruption on it, and post a new version? Thanks!

OK I tried the “reset exercise” button and it passed the first step without a problem.
