Append Content of One File to Another File in Python
This tutorial will show you how to read the content of a file and append it to another file in Python.
Python Append Content to File Example
The example below demonstrates opening a file and writing its contents to another file using the Python
with open('/path/to/file.txt', 'r') as f: data = f.read() with open('/path/to/output.txt', 'a') as f: f.write(data)
The key thing to observe in the example above is to set the mode of the open() function to append (
write() operation adds the new content to the end of the old content in append mode rather than overwriting it.
