print()

Examples
i = 123
f = 45.6

list_of_stuff = ["foo", "bar", "baz"]
print(i)
print(f)
print(s)
print(list_of_stuff)
Description The print() function writes to the console area, the black rectangle at the bottom of the Processing environment. This function is often helpful for looking at the data a program is producing.

Using print() on an object will output a string representation of that object, as determined by its internal __str__ and __repr__ methods (more information here).

In Python Mode, print() and println() are functionally identical.

Under the hood, print in Python 2 is not actually a function at all--it is a statement, and can be used without quotes: print i. Writing print(i) is print plus the single-element expression (i). When we write print(1,2), the statement outputs a tuple: (1, 2). To change this behavior, make the first line of a sketch: from __future__ import print_function. This turns print(i) into a function, disallows print i, and causes print(1, 2) to output 1, 2 rather than (1, 2).
