Why is it considered good practice to open a file from within a Python script by using the with keyword?

  • The with keyword lets you choose which application to open the file in.
  • The with keyword acts like a for loop, and lets you access each line in the file one by one.
  • There is no benefit to using the with keyword for opening a file in Python.
  • When you open a file using the with keyword in Python, Python will make sure the file gets closed, even if an exception or error is thrown.
