Yes, it is possible. You can import a text file in a python program and read it as a string.

using namespace std;
int main() {
   ifstream f("sample.txt"); //taking file as inputstream
   string str;
   if(f) {
      ostringstream ss;
      ss << f.rdbuf(); // reading data
      str = ss.str();

This simple code will import the file sample.txt and read it as a string.


sample.txt data file containing the text “Hello World”


Hello World
