I have a Latex Table that for weekly lesson plans, I want to pull data from syllabi that I will store as lists.(They will be read in from csv) So the syllabus is a list of 50 chapters and the latex has spaces for 2 lessons a week for 4th grade and 3 for sixth, I want to chomp the first lesson and stick in in the first token, then the next . . . right now my code would just give me chapter1 on Monday, Wed and Fri instead of ch1, ch2, ch3

math6 = ['chapter1', 'chapter2', 'chapter3', 'chapter1-3test']
math4= ['chapter1.1', 'chapter1.2-3', 'chapter2']

    \begin{tabular}{|p{0.7in}|p{0.8in}|p{2.2in}|p{.9in}|p{2.6in}|p{1.6in}|}
    6${}^{th}$ Math  \newline M\newline  & _math6_& 
    6${}^{th}$ Math  \newline W \newline  & _math6_ & 
    6${}^{th}$ Math  \newline  F \newline  & _math6_ &  
    4${}^{th}$ Math  \newline M\newline  &  & _math4_  &
    4${}^{th}$ Math \newline W\newline  &  & _math4_  & 
    \end{tabular}

here is the python

import re
template = file('file1.txt', 'r').read()

lost= ["geography", "physics", "hairdressing", "torah"]
n =0
while n<len(lost):
    temp=lost[n]
    page= re.sub(r'_thing_', temp, template)
    print page
    n+=1
#page= re.sub(r'_thing_', "martha", template)
#file('result.txt', 'w').write(page)

which gives me

#contents of file1
# Really long Latex
#File that has
# geography, geography, mary, tom, susan, geography
#that I want to replace
#read file1 in as a string, replace, save again

#contents of file1
# Really long Latex
#File that has
# physics, physics, mary, tom, susan, physics
#that I want to replace
#read file1 in as a string, replace, save again

#contents of file1
# Really long Latex
#File that has
# hairdressing, hairdressing, mary, tom, susan, hairdressing
#that I want to replace
#read file1 in as a string, replace, save again

#contents of file1
# Really long Latex
#File that has
# torah, torah, mary, tom, susan, torah
#that I want to replace
#read file1 in as a string, replace, save again
