How do I specify new lines on Python, when writing on files?


It depends on how correct you want to be. \n will usually do the job. If you really want to get it right, you look up the newline character in the os package. (It's actually called linesep.)

Note: when writing to files using the Python API, do not use the os.linesep. Just use \n; Python automatically translates that to the proper newline character for your platform.


The new line character is \n. It is used inside a string.

Example:

    print('First line \n Second line') 

where \n is the newline character.

This would yield the result:

First line Second line

If you use Python 2, you do not use the parentheses on the print function.


You can either write in the new lines separately or within a single string, which is easier.

Example 1

Input

line1 = "hello how are you"line2 = "I am testing the new line escape sequence"line3 = "this seems to work"

You can write the '\n' separately:

file.write(line1)file.write("\n")file.write(line2)file.write("\n")file.write(line3)file.write("\n")

Output

hello how are youI am testing the new line escape sequencethis seems to work

Example 2

Input

As others have pointed out in the previous answers, place the \n at the relevant points in your string:

line = "hello how are you\nI am testing the new line escape sequence\nthis seems to work"file.write(line)

Output

hello how are youI am testing the new line escape sequencethis seems to work
