Accidentally trying to read or write files that are closed will cause a
ValueError at runtime.
Python will raise "
ValueError: I/O operation on closed file" if you try to read or write a file that has been closed.
Files opened via a
with open(...) context manager will be automatically closed once the context manager is exited, meaning the file pointer, while still in scope, is no longer open to reads or writes.
