Text output is one of the basics in Python programming. Not all Programs have graphical user interfaces, text screens often suffice.
You can output to the terminal with print function. This function displays text on your screen, it won’t print.
The terminal is a very simple interface for Python programs. While not as shiny as a GUI or web app, it’s good enough to cover the basics in.
Create a new program (text file) in your IDE or code editor.
Name the file hello.py. It only needs one line of code.
To output text to the screen you will need this line::
Run the program (from terminal: python hello.py)
If you run the program:
The program above prints everything on a single line. At some point you’ll want to write multiple lines.
To write multiple lines, add the ‘\n’ character:
print("Hello World\nThis is a message")
\ncreate a new line
To print variables:
x = 3
This will show:
To print multiple variables on one line:
x = 2
Will give you:
x = 2, y = 3
