Unexpected EOF while parsing Python

In this Python tutorial, we will discuss what is Syntax Error- Unexpected EOF while parsing in python, also we will see EOL while scanning string literal and how to resolve these error.

Unexpected EOF while parsing python

In python, Unexpected EOF while parsing python where the control of the program reaches to the end. This error arises due to some incomplete syntax or something missing in the code.

Example:

my_list = [ 2, 4, 52, 7, 88, 99, 10]
value = min(my_list)
print(value

After writing the above code (unexpected EOF while parsing python), Ones you will print “ value” then the error will appear as a “ SyntaxError: unexpected EOF while parsing ”. Here, this error arises because we have created a list, and while printing value closing parenthesis ” ) ” is missing and it cannot find the closing bracket, due to which it throws an error.

This is SyntaxError: Unexpected EOF while parsing python.

To solve this, we need to take care of parameters and their syntaxes, also we need to check all functions and their closing statements.

Example:

my_list = [ 2, 4, 52, 7, 88, 99, 10]
value = min(my_list)
print(value)

After writing the above code the unexpected EOF while parsing python is resolved by giving the closing parenthesis ” ) ” in the value then the output will appear as a “ 2 ” and the error is resolved. So, the SyntaxError is resolved unexpected EOF while parsing python.

Python EOL while scanning string literal

EOL stands for “end of line” this error occurs when the python interpreter reaches the end of the line while searching for a string literal or a character within the line. This error is experienced by every python developer. This is due to the missing quotation in a string or you close a string using the wrong symbol.

Example:

class info :
    def method_s (self):
        print("This is method_s of info class.)
obj = info()
obj.method_s()

After writing the above code (python EOL while scanning string literal), Ones you will print then the error will appear as a “ SyntaxError: EOL while scanning string literal ”. Here, this error arises because it reaches the end of a string literal and finds that the quotation mark is missing.

You can refer to the below screenshot python EOL while scanning string literal.

To solve this “end of line” error while scanning string literal we have to check whether the string is closed or not, and also you have to check that you closed the string using the right symbol. Here, the error is due to a missing quotation in the string.

Example:

class info :
    def method_s (self):
        print("This is method_s of info class.")
obj = info()
obj.method_s()

After writing the above code python end of the line while scanning string literal is fixed by giving the double quotes at the end and then the output will appear as “ This is method_s of info class. ”, and the error is resolved. So, in this way, SyntaxError end of the line is resolved.
