In Python 2, the default print is a simple IO method that doesn't give many options to play around with.
The following two examples will summarize it.
var, var1, var2 = 1,2,3 print var print var1, var2
Prints two lines and, in the second line, and are separated by a single space.
for i in xrange(10): print i,
Prints each element separated by space on a single line. Removing the comma at the end will print each element on a new line.
Let's import the advanced
print_function from the
Its method signature is below:
print(*values, sep=' ', end='\n', file=sys.stdout) print(value1, value2, value3, sep=' ', end='\n', file=sys.stdout)
Here, values is an array and *values means array is unpacked, you can add values separated by a comma too. The arguments sep, end, and file are optional, but they can prove helpful in formatting output without taking help from a string module.
The argument definitions are below:
sep defines the delimiter between the values.
end defines what to print after the values.
file defines the output stream.
in Python 2
print_function is much faster than the default
