I want to print some stuff only when a boolean variable is set to True. So, after looking at this, I tried with a simple example:

>>> a = 100
>>> b = True
>>> print a if b
  File "<stdin>", line 1
    print a if b
SyntaxError: invalid syntax 

Same thing if I write print a if b==True.

What am I missing here?

Here is the syntax to write inline if statement:

(expression_if_true) if condition else (expression_if_false)

For this example, you cannot write an inline statement without else condition. Here is the way to write inline if statement for print:

print ( a if b else 0)
