Tip - The print function can take additional arguments
Learn what additional arguments you can use for the print function.
We all know the print function in Python
But do you know it also takes optional keyword-only arguments:
- print(objects, sep=' ', end='\n', file=sys.stdout, flush=False*)
sep argument for print¶
sep defines the separator between all objects. By default it is a space, but we can change it:
print("How", "are", "you", sep="-") # How-are-you
end argument for print¶
end defines the character in the end, which by default is a new-line character. For example, we can omit a new line with this:
print("Hello", end="") print("World") # HelloWorld
file argument for print¶
The file argument must be an object with a
write(string) method; if it is not present or
sys.stdout will be used.
f = open("test.txt", "a") print("This goes into a file", file=f) f.close()
This creates a file test.txt containing the text.
Since printed arguments are converted to text strings,
print() cannot be used with binary mode file objects. For these, use
Whether the output is buffered is usually determined by file, but if the flush keyword argument is true, the stream is forcibly flushed.
