working through advent of code with nim (so far)

I am certain I will run into a problem that will stump me soon.
Up until yesterday I was using this type of code to read a file line by line in nim.
let inf = open("input.txt") defer: inf.close() var total_priority = 0 var line : string while inf.read_line(line): # do something with line here
I looked for better official examples but came up with two different things and neither really satisfied me. But this is what I went with.
for line in lines("input.txt"): let data = line.split(",")
I really like the Pythonic way of opening an input file and defering a close. Perhaps I like that because it is what I learned many years ago in C or matches it closely.
