Python File flush() Method with example

Hello dear readers! Welcome back to another edition of our tutorial on Python. In this tutorial guide, we are going to be studying about the Python File flush() method.

Python file flush() method flushes the internal buffer, like stdio's fflush. This may be a no-op on some file-like objects.

Python automatically flushes a file when closing them. But you may also want to flush the data before closing any file.


The following below is the syntax for Python File flush() method -

fileObject.flush( );

Parameter Details

  • NA

Return Value

It does not return any value.


The following below is a simple example -


# Open a file
fo = open("foo.txt", "wb")
print "Name of the file: ", fo.name

# Here it does nothing, but you can call it with read operation.

# Close opend file

When the above code is executed, it will produce the following result -

Name of the file:  foo.txt
