Recipe Objective

While working with python we might need to save our output in a text file. Generally they come from loops which sometimes might be tricky to handle.

So this recipe is a short example on how to add for loop output to a text file. Let's get started.

Step 1 - Opening a text file

df=open('text file','w')

To start, we have to first create an object of a text file using the open function. We have used 'w' which refers to write function. Now df object stores the text file and can be easily written upon.

Step 2 - Adding a test line in the file

df.write('We will be seeing an interated printing of numbers between 0 to 10\n')

We have added a test line using write function.

Step 3 - Writing a for loop over the file

for i in range(0,11): df.write(str(i)) df.write('\n')

We have created a loop, iterating over i from 0 to 10. Write function only accepts string values, hence converted the same using str function and finally adding a new line using '\n'

Step 4 - Closing the text file

df.close()

After all the amendments are done, use close fuction to simply close the file created.

Step 5 - Let's look at our dataset now

Once we run the above code snippet, we will not be seeing any output. However, a file named test file would have been created in the directory you are working on, containing all your inputs.
