I'm facing this exact same error trying: f = urllib.urlopen('')

Hi, I've recently installed Micropython 1.9.3 onto a NodeMCU device, and I'm currently trying to get a Python file I've previously written for a Raspberry Pi to run. I've imported urllib.urequest and successfully ran
f = urllib.urequest.urlopen(""), however, I don't know how to then manipulate the downloaded string. In Python I would use lines = f.readlines() but this results in an error:-

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
AttributeError: 'socket' object has no attribute 'readlines'

Can you please advise how I can manipulate the text string downloaded from the above site?



UPDATE: I've discovered the following:-

import urequests as requests
f = requests.get("")
myfile = (f.text)
print (myfile)

will save the contents of the above txt file to "myfile", now I need to figure out how to manipulate myfile so that just the final numerical value of the last line is extracted...
