Then you might want to do an old trick.

eoln = chr(10)  # a newline character

f.writelines(map(lambda s, e=eoln: s+e, ["Scooby", "Dooby", "Doo"]))

You might also want to get an editor that will remap keys for you, so
that when you type the monetary symbol, it prints a backslash.


P.S. For your information:
"/" - forward slash or "slash"
"\" - backward slash or "backslash"
