What Is %S In Python?
#Python2 name = raw_input("who are you?") print "hello %s" % (name,) #Python3+ name = raw_input("who are you?") print("hello %s" % (name,))
%s token allows me to insert (and potentially format) a string. Notice that the
%s token is replaced by whatever I pass to the string after the
% symbol. Notice also that I am using a tuple here as well (when you only have one string using a tuple is optional) to illustrate that multiple strings can be inserted and formatted in one statement.
