How to iterate through a list in Python?
There are different ways to iterate through a list object. The for statement in Python has a variant which traverses a list till it is exhausted. It is equivalent to foreach statement in Java. Its syntax is −
for var in list: stmt1 stmt2
Following script will print all items in the list
L=[10,20,30,40,50] for var in L: print (L.index(var),var)
The output generated is −
0 10 1 20 2 30 3 40 4 50
Another approach is to iterate over range upto length of list, and use it as index of item in list
for var in range(len(L)): print (var,L[var])
You can also obtain enumerate object from the list and iterate through it. Following code too gives same output.
for var in enumerate(L): print (var)
