The '\' backslash in Python strings is a special character, sometimes called the escape character. It is used to represent whitespace characters as '\t' represents a tab.

This article will discuss some methods to print the Python tab.

We can use \t in the print() function to print the tab correctly in Python.

The complete example code is given below.

print("Python\tprogramming") 

Output:

Python	Programming 

This method will insert tabs between different elements of the list.

The complete example code is given below:

Lst = ['Python','Java','C++'] print (str(Lst[0]) + "\t" + str(Lst[1]) + "\t" + str(Lst[2])) 

Output:

Python	Java	C++ 

str will convert the list elements into the string with all values separated by Python tabs.

This method will print tabs in the given statement or some data points.

The complete example code is given below:

Data_Points = "2\t6\t10" print (Data_Points) 

Output:

2	6	10 

In this method, we will use the escape sequences in the string literals to print tab. The escape sequences could be below types.

Escape Sequence Description
\N{name} name is the Character name in the Unicode database
\uxxxx 16-bit Unicode
\Uxxxxxxxx 32-bit Unicode
\xhh 8-bit Unicode

The name of the table in the Unicode database is TAB or tab, or TaB because it is not case insensitive.

The other names representing the tab in the Unicode database are HT, CHARACTER TABULATION, and HORIZONTAL TABULATION.

The tab’s Unicode value is 09 for \x, 0009 for \u, and 00000009 for \U.

The complete example code is given below:

print("python\N{TAB}programming") print("python\N{tab}programming") print("python\N{TaB}programming")  print("python\N{HT}programming") print("python\N{CHARACTER TABULATION}programming") print("python\N{HORIZONTAL TABULATION}programming")  print("python\x09programming") print("python\u0009programming") print("python\U00000009programming") 

Output:

python	programming python	programming python	programming python	programming python	programming python	programming python	programming python	programming python	programming
