how do i keep python from printing a newline when it exits theprogram?

Here is a simple script:

print "No newline, please.",
# End of script

When the program runs, python is still printing a newline when the
program exits. How does one keep python from doing so?

Use sys.stdout.writ e() instead of print or clear the softspace flag

sys.stdout.soft space = False

after the print statement. Google 'site:mail.pyth on.org exit newline' for
some background.

class softspaceLess(o bject):
import sys
print "a", "b", " ", "d" a b d print >>softspaceLess (sys.stdout), "a", "b", " ", "d"

ab d
def __init__(self, file=sys.stdout ):
self.__dict__['_file'] = file
file.softspace = False
def __getattr__(sel f,a):
if a == 'softspace': return False
return getattr(self._f ile,a)
def __setattr__(sel f,a,v):
if a=='softspace': return
setattr(self._f ile,a,v)

I think everyone who used Python will agree that its syntax is the best thing going for it. It is very readable and easy for everyone to learn. But, Python does not a have very good macro capabilities, unfortunately. I'd like to know if it may be possible to add a powerful macro system to Python, while keeping its amazing syntax, and if it could be possible to add Pythonistic syntax to Lisp or Scheme, while keeping all of the...

In the endless Lisp/macro threads, Alex Martelli mentioned something a bit interesting about screen-reading applications. Specifically, he expressed reservations about whether Python would be a good language for visually impaired or blind programmers.

Hi. This post follows "does python have useless destructors". I'm not an expert, so I hope what I will write is meaningfull and clear.

Of course Python objects are not statics like in C++, but in C++ the auto_ptr class is used for enforcing this pattern for dynamical

Hey there, and thanks for reading a newbie post. I have a lex assignment in which we are supposed to grab strings from a C source file, and print them out to the screen, with escaped characters "converted". Here's part of the assignment text: ---------------------------------------------------------------- Example: main() { char *s = "This is string one";
by: teachtiro | last post by:
Hi, 'C' says \ is the escape character to be used when characters are to be interpreted in an uncommon sense, e.g. \t usage in printf(), but for printing % through printf(), i have read that %% should be used. Wouldn't it have been better (from design perspective) if the same escape character had been used in this case too. Forgive me for posting without verfying things with any standard compiler, i don't have the means for now.

In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
