Open multiple files using with open() in Python?

0 votes

if I somehow can combine the multiple open calls with the with statement:

try:
  with open('a', 'w') as a and open('b', 'w') as b:
    do_something()
except IOError as e:
  print 'Operation failed: %s' % e.strerror

If that's not possible, what other way to solve this problem look like?

Just replace and with , and you're done:
with open('a', 'w') as a, open('b', 'w') as b:
    do_something()

In earlier versions of Python, you can sometimes use contextlib.nested() to nest context managers.
