This week, we're updating our course layouts and descriptions. Presentation and materials always gently change over time, but just occasionally there's a need to make a step change to clear out some of the old and roll in the new. That's now happening - but over a long and complex site it's not instant and you'll see sections of the site changing up to and including 19th September.

hy "print >>" is wrong

Posted by cyq858 (cyq858), 7 July 2004
I am a beginner of python, here is a code developed by
others which I need to use,

def printThis(self):
     out = self.out
     print >> out
     print >> out, '........'

but when I execute it, it says that "print >> "
is a syntax error.
can I use "print >>" instead of "print"?

I think you are converting from C++  

In Python, if you want to write to a file opened on a file handle called out, then use a structure like
         out.write("This is my text\n");
