Ways to use Python Print Function

Ways to use Python Print Function

The Print function

Python comes up with a print function to display the output. Before version 3.x of Python, the print was used as a statement i.e. it did not require brackets ().

Whereas, in the latest version, Python uses print as a function while strings, variables etc has to be enclosed in brackets.

If the print statement is used in the latest version, an error will be generated.

A print example with code

In our examples of Python tutorial, we used the latest method of displaying the output, i.e. using Python print as a function, as such it uses version 3.x.

Syntax of print()

Following is the syntax of print function:

Print(“string” or variable_name )

Example of using print function

Following example shows how to use the Python print function to display variable value. The first print function displays a string variable while the other displays an int variable by using the print Python function:

The output will be:

This is simple print statement

This will display a string variable

This is mixed string and int 12345

Print function in a for loop

Similarly, you can use the print function in the for loop to display values during the iteration.

In this example, we have used a List of Python with six elements. Then a for loop is used to iterate through the list. Inside the for loop, the print function is used to display the List elements.
