Printing

Printing in Python


To output a message onto the screen use the print command. Then place your message within brackets and speech marks. For example:

print

When you press F5 (or click the ‘Run’ tab then ‘Run Module’), it will look like this:

print 2

 Printing over Several Lines


One way of writing over more than one line is to write several print commands like this:

newbs1

But when we program we always want to make our code the most efficient it can be by using as few lines as possible. Therefore you can write \n within a printed statement to transfer it to the next line.

print 3

Both pieces of code display the same thing, but the second one is much more efficient.
