If we use the bare "except:" the message "could not open file!" is shown
and we would waste time trying to figure out why it can't be opened.

Instead, if we use "except IOError:", the first time we run the program
the error "NameError: name 'opne' is not defined" is raised, telling us
what's wrong. Once we know it, we can change 'opne' to 'open' and solve
the problem.

Indeed it could be clearer.
