How do I specify new lines on Python when writing on files

0 votes
In comparison to Java (in a string), you would do something like "First Line\r\nSecond Line".

So how would you do that in Python, for purposes of writing multiple lines to a regular file?

It is up to you to decide how correct you wish to be. In most cases, \n will enough. You should look up the newline character in the os package if you really want to do it correctly. (It's actually referred to as linesep.)

Use the os.linesep instead of the os.linesep when writing to files with the Python API. Simply type \n, and Python will convert it to the appropriate newline character for your platform.
