[PYTHON] How to create a new file when the specified file does not exist — write if the file exists

Here, if the specified file (text.txt) does not exist, create a file (text.txt), and if it does exist, write "test" to the file.


import os
import pathlib

TEXT_FILE = "text.txt"

if not os.path.exists(TEXT_FILE):
    with open(TEXT_FILE, "w") as file:

#Output result (1st time)

#Output result (second time)

It was a combination of os and pathlib, and it was very easy to create an empty file.
