I need from this code that var1,var2,var3,var4 should be continuosly read from file(or serial port) and there value be updated continuosly.Also i wish to use these 4 variables for plotting in pygame/matplotlib/VPython .How can i do that.Moreover for every read cycle there has to be a write cycle on to a file(or serial port) and the user must be able to set this value via an entry.have not been able to figure out all this.Moreover with my code i am able to presently display updated information on a button click(where as i wanna use button just to start things of)
Code:
#!/usr/bin/env python

#This program will attempt to read a line from a file using a GUI
