Write unbuffered on python 3

2024/4/15 1:04:41

I'm trying to create a file on python without buffer, so its written at the same time I use write(). But for some reason I got an error.
This is the line I'm using:

my_file = open("test.txt", "a", buffering=0) my_file.write("Testing unbuffered writing\n")

And this is the error I got:
my_file = open("test.txt", "a", buffering=0) ValueError: can't have unbuffered text I/O

There is anyway to do an unbuffered write on a file? I'm using python 3 on pyCharm.


The error isn't from Pycharm.

From Python documentation:

buffering is an optional integer used to set the buffering policy.Pass 0 to switch buffering off (only allowed in binary mode)

Your code only works in Python 2 but won't work in Python 3. Because Strings are immutable sequences of Unicode code points in Python 3. You need to have bytes here. To do it in Python 3 you can convert your unicode str to bytes in unbuffered mode.

For example:

my_file.write("Testing unbuffered writing\n".encode("utf-8"))
