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


Here is a simple script:
#!/usr/bin/python

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?

Thanks!

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.

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...
