Here we’re trying to remove those gaps we see in the output of our code. Code:     Output (see the gap?):   Removing the gap isn’t necessary, but personally, I don’t like it, so I am glad we’re working on how we can modify our code to remove it using rstrip() . .rstrip() removes trailing characters (like the space character we have ‘/n’ in our list).

Much better. Now we learn how to get our output to save to a new file.
