# tf.keras.backend.print_tensor

tf.keras.backend.print_tensor(
x,
message=''
)


Prints message and the tensor value when evaluated.

Note that print_tensor returns a new tensor identical to x which should be used in the following code. Otherwise the print operation is not taken into account during evaluation.

Example:

   >>> x = K.print_tensor(x, message="x is: ")


#### Arguments:

• x: Tensor to print.
• message: Message to print jointly with the tensor.

#### Returns:

The same tensor x, unchanged.
