The basic Print statement in Python is Print “” – note Print ” also works. You can choose either single or double quotes, but you cannot mix them in the same statement.
Printing variables in Python is a bit more complicated.
If the variable you want to print is a number, use the special string %d inside the quotes and % variable outside the quotes.
If you have more than one variable, you need to have a %d for each variable. Then place your variables inside () at the end of the print line.
To print a string, you use %s. Notice below you can mix strings and numbers in the same line.
You can use %r if you are not sure what value the variable will have. It will print both.
raw_input() allows you ask the user for input.
You can assign the user input to a variable.
You can also pre-define what kind of input you want. Note the error in the second instance. x = int(raw_input()) means I am looking for an integer as input.
If I enter an integer, I do not get the error.
