Printing without a newline

To print without newlines, simply add the end option to your print statements:

print("Linux", end="")
print("Screw", end="")

This will output:


…without a newline in sight. The end option tells the print function what to append to the end of its output. By default it’s a newline (\n), but by overriding it with an empty string, the newline is removed.
