This week's book giveaway is in the OO, Patterns, UML and Refactoring forum. We're giving away four copies of Refactoring for Software Design Smells: Managing Technical Debt and have Girish Suryanarayana, Ganesh Samarthyam & Tushar Sharma on-line! See this thread for details.
I have written a code for one exercise from the book 'Core Python Programming' as below... (The question is in the comment)
I want to know, whether I can use some other modules to better this code??
I just followed the simple for, if, else step to get the job done... Is there any other way where I can use pre-defined methods??
I'm just learning Python myself, so I'm not sure if you can use other modules to achieve this. But one question you could ask is what happens if the files have different numbers of lines? Hint: check out izip_longest().

Yeah that thing I have taken care of after I posted the code..
We can also use map here (because, size of list returned by zip is equal to the size of shortest list...
Whereas in map, you get size of max list, with corresponding element for other list will be None in the following tuple)
