Read a text file from a server using Python

To read a text file from a server using Python, you can use the

requests
library to make an HTTP request to the server and retrieve the content of the file. Here's a basic example:

1. **Install Requests**:
   If you haven't already installed the `requests` library, you can install it using pip:
   ```

   pip install requests

   ```


2. **Python Code**:
   Create a Python script to make an HTTP GET request to the server and read the content of the text file:

 
 ```python

   import requests


   # URL of the text file on the server

   file_url = 'https://example.com/path/to/file.txt'


   # Make an HTTP GET request to the server

   response = requests.get(file_url)


   # Check if the request was successful (status code 200)

   if response.status_code == 200:

       # Print the content of the text file

       print("Content of the text file:")

       print(response.text)

   else:

       print(f"Failed to fetch content from {file_url}. Status code: {response.status_code}")

   ```


   Replace `'https://example.com/path/to/file.txt'` with the URL of the text file on the server.

3. **Run the Script**:
   Execute the Python script, and it will make an HTTP GET request to the server, retrieve the content of the text file, and print it to the console.

This example demonstrates how to read a text file from a server using Python and the `requests` library. You can further customize the script to handle different types of HTTP responses or perform additional processing on the file content as needed.
