Hi, I am trying to teach myself python (which is going very slowly) and I have an assignment to do. Part of the assignment is asking me to read from a text file which contains a list of people's preferences for meals at a restaurant, eg. Bill - steak, fish, chicken; Mary - fish, chicken, steak; Joe - steak, chicken, fish. The assignment wants me to read from the file and then return the preferences as a dictionary. If anyone can help me with writing the code for this, I would be grateful.
