The example at the bottom is good but has a line with a bad variable it is name. It says:

    with open(fromlines) as fromf, open(tofile) as tof:
        fromlines, tolines = list(fromf), list(tof)

In the first line, fromlines does no even exist yet. should say:

    with open(fromlines) as fromf, open(tofile) as tof:
        from, tolines = list(fromf), list(tof)

Thanks for the report.  Actually that first 'fromlines' should be 'fromfile'.  Looks like someone made a typo when converting the example to use the 'with' statement.
