Kotlin Output Functions

In Kotlin, there are two types to print to console:

  • println()
  • print()

Difference Between println() and print()

  • print() - prints string inside the quotes.
  • println() - prints string inside the quotes similar like print() function. Then the cursor moves to the beginning of the next line.

Example 1: print() and println()

fun main(args : Array<String>) {
    println("1. println ");
    println("2. println ");

    print("1. print ");
    print("2. print");


1. println
2. println
1. print 2. print

Example 2: Print Variables and Literals

fun main(args : Array<String>) {
    val ammount = 22.5

    println("ammount = $ammount")
    println("${ammount + ammount}")


ammount = 22.5
