Loops and print

by: PyLORD, 3 years ago


Hey fellow programmers, I have a question about how to print output on the same line in a for loop in Python. Here is the code

import time
y = "This is a string and it is useful in Python."
def nice_print(y):
for x in range(len(y)):
time.sleep(0.5)
print(y[x])

nice_print(y)

This is the result.

T
h
i
s

i
s

a

s
t
r
i
n
g

a
n
d

i
t

i
s

u
s
e
f
u
l

i
n

P
y
t
h
o
n
.

Note the change in the print function. (It's actually two single quotes with no space between them.)  Python automatically adds a newline character and you can override it with anything.


import time
y = "This is a string and it is useful in Python."
def nice_print(y):
for x in range(len(y)):
time.sleep(0.5)
print(y[x], end='')

nice_print(y)

Not tryna be needy here. But I kinda want the typing effect that the loop shows, Because  when I add the tab escape character, It instantly prints everything without showing the pauses between characters.

A built-in file object that is analogous to the interpreter's standard output stream in Python . Unlike print, sys.stdout.write() doesn't switch to a new line after one text is displayed. To achieve this one can employ a new line escape character(n) .

import sys
for item in ['a','b','c','d']:
  sys.stdout.write(item)

While using stdout , you need to convert the object to a string yourself (by calling "str", for example) and there is no newline character . The return value for sys.stdout.write() returns the no. of bytes written which also gets printed on the interactive interpret prompt for any expressions enter.
