I want to loop over the contents of a text file and do a search and replace on some lines and write the result back to the file. I could first load the whole file in memory and then write it back, but that probably is not the best way to do it.
What is the best way to do this, within the following code?
f = open(file)
for line in f:
newline = line.replace('foo', 'bar')
# how to write this newline back to the file
