% operator in Python

0 votes
In the following Code:

class Point(object):
    """blub"""
    #class variables and methods

blank = Point
blank.x = 2.0
blank.y = 6.0    
print('(%g,%g)' % (blank.x,blank.y))

It prints (2.0, 6.0), i.e. the values in blank.x and blank.y.

I don't understand the % operator in front of the (blank.x, blank.y) in the last line. What does it do and where can I find it in the documentation?

When you use '(%g,%g)', it is the template and (blank.x,blank.y) are the values which need to be filled in place of  %g and %g and % operator is used to perform the same. It is called interpolation or formatting operator.
