Hello Everyone, I want to load the data I have in a file, which looks like:
Now, I want to load this from the file and compute the normalization. I do:
f = open("Input.txt", "r") data = [line.strip() for line in f] print data norm = [float(i)/sum(data) for i in data] print norm
But, I am getting the error:
ValueError: invalid literal for float()
Although, I do the process directly into python 2.7 console in linux like,
a = [21.4,0.266667,0,0.966667,0.166667,0.966667,0.533333,0.1] norm = [float(i)/sum(a) for i in a] print norm
This works fine. I don't know what I am doing wrong. Please help me and I am new to programming. Thanks in advance!
