[python] How to print values separated by spaces instead of new lines in Python 2.7

I am using Python 2.7.3 and I am writing a script which prints the hex byte values of any user-defined file. It is working properly with one problem: each of the values is being printed on a new line. Is it possible to print the values with spaces instead of new lines?

For example, instead of



I would like to have 61 62.

Below is my code (..txt is a file which contains the text 'abcd'):

import os
import sys
import time

filename = raw_input("Enter directory of the file you want to convert: ")

f = open(filename, 'rb')
fldt = f.read()
lnfl = len(fldt)
print "Length of file is", lnfl, "bytes. "
orck = 0
while orck < lnfl:
    bndt = hex(ord(fldt[orck]))
    bndt = bndt[-2:]
    orck = orck + 1
    ent = chr(13) + chr(10)
    entx = str(ent)
    bndtx = str(bndt)
    bndtx.replace(entx, ' ')
    print bndtx

This question is related to python python-2.7 printing newline

The answer is

First of all print isn't a function in Python 2, it is a statement.

To suppress the automatic newline add a trailing ,(comma). Now a space will be used instead of a newline.


print 1,
print 2


1 2

Or use Python 3's print() function:

from __future__ import print_function
print(1, end=' ') # default value of `end` is '\n'

As you can clearly see print() function is much more powerful as we can specify any string to be used as end rather a fixed space.
