list

Stay organized with collections Save and categorize content based on your preferences.
The built-in list type. Example list expressions:
x = [1, 2, 3]
Accessing elements is possible using indexing (starts from 0):
e = x[1]   # e == 2
Lists support the + operator to concatenate two lists. Example:
x = [1, 2] + [3, 4]   # x == [1, 2, 3, 4]
x = ["a", "b"]
x += ["c"]            # x == ["a", "b", "c"]
Similar to strings, lists support slice operations:
['a', 'b', 'c', 'd'][1:3]   # ['b', 'c']
['a', 'b', 'c', 'd'][::2]  # ['a', 'c']
['a', 'b', 'c', 'd'][3:0:-1]  # ['d', 'c', 'b']
Lists are mutable, as in Python.
