- class capture(seq='', *args, **kwargs)[source]#
Captures stdout (e.g., from
print()) as a variable.
contextlib.redirect_stdout, but saves the user the trouble of defining and reading from an IO stream. Useful for testing the output of functions that are supposed to print certain output.
# Using with...as with sc.capture() as txt1: print('Assign these lines') print('to a variable') # Using start()...stop() txt2 = sc.capture().start() print('This works') print('the same way') txt2.stop() print('txt1:') print(txt1) print('txt2:') print(txt2)
