Here are two top methods. A long string you can continue writing on multiple lines if you know these methods. Backslash and Triple quote methods in python serve the purpose.

Backslash method  

>>> s = "This is a test of the emergency broadcast system" \
… " and it will display an emergency if you put a line of
text" \
… " that is more than 80 characters on a single line"


>>> print(s)

This is a test of the emergency broadcast system and it will
display an emergency if you put a line of text that is more
than 80 characters on a single line


Split Strings

Triple quote method


>>> s1 = """ This is a test of the emergency broadcast
system.
… and it will display an emergency if you put a line of text
… that is more than 80 characters on a single line
… """

>>> print(s1)

This is a test of the emergency broadcast system.
and it will display an emergency if you put a line of text
that is more than 80 characters on a single line


Summary

  • You can use two methods to split the string
  • The Triple quote method is easier to use
