Returns a printed representation of the objects.
print (*objects, sep=’ ‘, end=’n’, file=sys.stdout)
- Optional. Objects to be printed.
- Optional. A string printed between objects. Keyword argument.
- Optional. A string appended to the end of the statement. Keyword argument.
- Optional. An object with write(string) method. Keyword argument.
All non-keyword arguments are converted to strings like str() does and written to the stream, separated by sep and followed by end. Both sep and end must be strings; they can also be None, which means to use the default values. If no objects are given, print() will just write end.
The file argument must be an object with a write(string) method; if it is not present or None, sys.stdout will be used. Output buffering is determined by file. Use file.flush() to ensure, for instance, immediate appearance on a screen.
This function is not normally available as a built-in since the name print is recognized as the print statement. To disable the statement and use the print() function, use this future statement at the top of your module:
>>> from __future__ import print_function
>>> from __future__ import print_function >>> print('a', 'b') a b
>>> print(1, 2, 3, sep='|') 1|2|3 >>> print('foobar snafu', end='|') foobar snafu|
>>> print('foobar', file=open(r'C:\test.txt', "w")) >>> open(r'C:\test.txt', "r").read() 'foobar\n'
