Maya Script reading txt-file and interpret data
 
Hello world!
I am currently experimenting with txt files inside maya. F.e.
"
1 sphere
2 cube
3 cylinder
4 cone
5 plane

"

The left column reflects a frame number and the right an objectname.
I want to read the file and interact with an object only for a specific frame. For example switching the visibility of an object on and off.

this is what i got so far:

fileHandle = open('c:\\text.txt', 'r' )
str1 = fileHandle.read()
fileHandle.close()
print str1

(This doesn't have to be written in Python. MEL is perfect aswell)
I know how to read the file and save it to an string but not how to navigate inside.
Perhaps someone is experienced enough to help :)
Thank you very :bounce:
