I was working on a pseudocode test bank and got caught with one of the differences between Java and Python.
One of the questions was something like this.
x = 3 loop while x < 10 print x + " "
The expected answer
3 6 9 has the values concatenated. It’s just easier that way when dealing with online testing in Canvas or Moodle.
In Python 2 I could use
print x, and the trailing comma would take care of not inserting a line break, although it still inserted a trailing space which wasn’t ideal.
Thanks to Stack Overflow I found the solution. There’s an optional parameter called
end in the
x = 3 while x < 10: print(str(x) + " ", end = '')
Guess I could have searched through the Python documentation for print. But Google brought me to SO first.
