Python supports different types and format strings. In this tutorial, we will simply look at multi-line strings. We have the following code and want to type it in a single expression in multiline. As a practical programming language Python provides different ways to create multi-line strings.
Joining Line By Line
The most basic and simplest form is adding string lines step by step like below. We will use
. in order to add strings together which will create a multi-line string which is stored in a variable named
$html in this example.
html="<html><body>"; html.="</body></html> echo $html
We can use a double quote by wrapping multiple lines. This will legal for python programming. And we can end the string whenever we want like below.
3 Single Quote
By default, a single quote is used to express single-line strings. But 3 single quotes can be used to express multiline strings in Python programming language.
Basic for is a single-line string. We can use single line Python strings like below where a double quote with a single line stored in a variable that is HTML in this example. We will use /n which means a new line.
EOF is a special keyword used to specify multi-line strings. The start of the multi-line string is marked with
<<< EOF and then the string will be given. We also need to specify the end of the string with
EOF too like below.
html= <<< EOF <html><body> </body></html> EOF
