Python print end parameter

  • by

The end parameter is used to specify what should be printed at the end of the print function’s output instead of the default newline character ('\n'). You can use this parameter to control the ending character or string that separates multiple print statements.

Here’s an example of how you can use the end parameter:

print("Hello", end=", ")
print("world!", end=" ")
print("Python", end=" rocks!")

Output: Hello, world! Python rocks!

n this example, we’ve used different values for the end parameter to customize the separation between the printed statements.

Remember that by default, the end parameter is set to '\n', so each print statement ends with a newline character, which moves the cursor to the next line. If you want to prevent this behavior and keep the output on the same line, you can set end=''.

Here’s an example demonstrating the default behavior:

print("Line 1")
print("Line 2")


Line 1
Line 2

And here’s an example to keep the output on the same line using the end parameter:

print("Line 1", end='')
print("Line 2")

Output: Line 1Line 2

This way, you have more control over the formatting of your output when using the print() function in Python.

Python print end example

Here are a few more examples of how you can use the end parameter with the print() function in Python:

Printing numbers on the same line with a space separator:

for i in range(1, 6):
    print(i, end=' ')

Creating a progress bar effect:

import time

for i in range(11):
    print(f"Progress: {i * 10}%", end='\r')

This will print a progress bar that updates on the same line as the percentage increases.

Printing a pattern on a single line:

pattern = "*"
for _ in range(5):
    print(pattern, end='')
    pattern += "*"

Displaying items from a list on the same line:

fruits = ["apple", "banana", "cherry", "date"]

for fruit in fruits:
    print(fruit, end=' | ')

Printing a countdown:

import time

for i in range(5, 0, -1):
    print(i, end=' ', flush=True)



Python print end parameter

In these examples, the end parameter is used to control the behavior of the print() function and customize the output format. You can adjust the value of the end parameter to achieve the desired output style.
