Hello All, How can i add spaces and new line while saving contents to new file in python using for loop?

make a list to hold onto our items

shopping_list = []

def show_help(): # print out instructions on how to use the app print("What should we pick up at the store?") print(""" Enter 'DONE' to stop adding items. Enter 'HELP' for this help. Enter 'SHOW' to see your current list. """)

def show_list(): # print out the list print("Here's your list:")

for item in shopping_list:

def add_to_list(new_item): # add new items to our list shopping_list.append(new_item) print("Added {}. List now has {} items.".format(new_item, len(shopping_list)))

def save_file(): list_file = open("newfile.txt","w") for item in shopping_list: list_file.write(str(item )) list_file.close()

def read_file(): list_file = open("newfile.txt","r") print("Saved Shopping List: ") print(list_file.read()) list_file.close()


while True: # ask for new items new_item = input("> ")

# be able to quit the app
if new_item == 'DONE':
elif new_item == 'HELP':
elif new_item == 'SHOW':

show_list() user_input = input("Want to save the file 'Y' or 'N' ?") if user_input.lower() == 'y': save_file() else: print("Ok thank you")

Hey Manthan!

To add another string without creating a new line in Python, you should use a ', ' at the end of the print statement. Something like this is going to print multiple things in the same line:

print("My name is Eric"),

This will print out "My name is Eric Hamers".
