Python documentation of open function

can anyone explain to me what is the definition of file means ?

Hi @ayahdemerdash. If you’re confused about the difference between absolute or relative pathnames, this article might help. While working on the Dataquest platform you’ll most often be using a relative pathname (as shown in the examples). The absolute pathname is important to know about when you’re working locally or your dataset is located in a different location. I hope this helps.
