Python Program to Create a Long Multiline String

In this example, you will learn to create a long multiline string.

To understand this example, you should have the knowledge of the following Python programming topics:


Example 1: Using triple quotes

my_string = '''The only way to
learn to program is
by writing code.'''

print(my_string)

Output

The only way to
learn to program is
by writing code.

You can use '''(multiline string)''' or """(multiline string)""".


Example 2: Using parentheses and a single/double quotes

my_string = ("The only way to \n"
        	"learn to program is \n"
        	"by writing code.")

print(my_string)

Output

The only way to
learn to program is
by writing code.

If you use (" ") syntax, you need to specify the newlines explicitly using \n.


Example 3: Using \

my_string = "The only way to \n" \
        	"learn to program is \n" \
        	"by writing code."

print(my_string)

Output

The only way to
learn to program is
by writing code.

You can use \ as in the above example code to write a multiline string.
