Parameters

  • Keepends − This is an optional parameter, if its value as true, line breaks need are also included in the output.

Example

The following example shows the usage of splitlines() method.

#!/usr/bin/python

str = "Line1-a b c d e f\nLine2- a b c\n\nLine4- a b c d";
print str.splitlines( )
print str.splitlines( 0 )
print str.splitlines( 3 )
print str.splitlines( 4 )
print str.splitlines( 5 )

When we run above program, it produces following result −

['Line1-a b c d e f', 'Line2- a b c', '', 'Line4- a b c d']
['Line1-a b c d e f', 'Line2- a b c', '', 'Line4- a b c d']
['Line1-a b c d e f\n', 'Line2- a b c\n', '\n', 'Line4- a b c d']
['Line1-a b c d e f\n', 'Line2- a b c\n', '\n', 'Line4- a b c d']
['Line1-a b c d e f\n', 'Line2- a b c\n', '\n', 'Line4- a b c d']

Example

If you pass “True” as a parameter to this method this includes the line breaks in the output.

#!/usr/bin/python

str = "Line1-a b c d e f\nLine2- a b c\n\nLine4- a b c d";
print str.splitlines(True)
print str.splitlines( 0 )
print str.splitlines( 3 )
print str.splitlines( 4 )
print str.splitlines( 5 )

['Line1-a b c d e f\n', 'Line2- a b c\n', '\n', 'Line4- a b c d']
['Line1-a b c d e f', 'Line2- a b c', '', 'Line4- a b c d']
['Line1-a b c d e f\n', 'Line2- a b c\n', '\n', 'Line4- a b c d']
['Line1-a b c d e f\n', 'Line2- a b c\n', '\n', 'Line4- a b c d']
