In Python, the Touch module is used to create any file on any specified directory. The touch module is equivalent to linux command ‘touch‘ or to the windows’ cmd command ‘ type null > ‘. Installation: This module does not come built-in with Python. To install this module type the below command in the terminal.
pip install touch
Example 1: In this example, we will create a file inside a same directory.
import touch
  
touch.touch("success.java")

                    
Output: python-touch Example 2: In this example, we will create a file in a different directory. Here we create a file in “testm” folder.
import touch
  
touch.touch("testm / success2.java")

                    
Output: python-touch Example 3: In this example, we will create a multiple files at the same time. For this, we need to pass the file name in a list.
import touch
  
touch.touch(["testm / success100.java", "success10.cpp"])

                    
Output: python-touch
