Correct way to write line to file?

This should be as simple as:

with open('somefile.txt', 'a') as the_file:

From The Documentation:

Do not use os.linesep as a line terminator when writing files opened in text mode (the default); use a single '\n' instead, on all platforms.

Some useful reading:

  • The with statement
  • open()
    • 'a' is for append, or use
    • 'w' to write with truncation
  • os (particularly os.linesep)
