I'm sure I read this somewhere recently, but my scratchy memory and command of Google can't bring it back to me.
Is there a Python idiom for accepting either a file name or a file object as a function parameter?
The closest I can get is this;
def my_function(file_name_or_object):try: open(file_name_or_object) except TypeError: file = file_name_or_object return file
Any improvements on this are more than welcome.
