Python: put each line of words in a list

problem:

I am trying to append words in the animals.txt into myList. The

animals.txt
file looks like something below.

code tried:

opena = open('animals.txt')
aread = opena.read()
myList = []
for line in aread:
myList.append(line.split("\n"))

print(myList)


animals.txt

COW
CHICKEN
DOG
RAT
MOUSE


expected output for myList:

myList = ['COW', 'CHICKEN', 'DOG', 'RAT', 'MOUSE']

Im not sure why you used the split function. Instead i think the following list comprehension will help you.

f = open('animal.txt','r')
myList = [line.strip() for line in f]
f.close()

Hope it helps.
