[Tutor] question on string

I would like to construct some string objects using the cprintf-style
command_string = "diff -u %s %s > %s.patch" % ( src, dst, file )
Of course it is illegal in python but I couldn't figure out a way to
construct strings with that kind of formatting and substitution.
I have been looking and couldn't discover string constructor such as
command_string = string( "diff -u %s %s > %s.patch" % ( src, dst, file ) )
From the documentation on docs.python.org, the closest is string
Template (but my python installation doesn't come with this module). Any
insights on initializing string in this manner?
