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");
