Hi,

I would l like to write some data to a text file. I want to write the
data with whitespace or tabs in between so that I create tabular
columns like in a spreadsheet. How can I do this in python.
(btw, I'm new to python)

names = ['John','Steve','asimov','fred','jim']
## output I would like in txt file : John         Steve
asimov      fred     jim

f=open('/User/home/Documents/programming/python/test.txt','w')
	for x in range(len(names)):
		f.write(tags[x])
	f.close()
