Python list method list() takes sequence types and converts them to lists. This is used to convert a given tuple into list.
Note − Tuple are very similar to lists with only difference that element values of a tuple can not be changed and tuple elements are put between parentheses instead of square bracket.
Following is the syntax for list() method −
list( seq )
seq − This is a tuple to be converted into list.
This method returns the list.
The following example shows the usage of list() method.
#!/usr/bin/python aTuple = (123, 'xyz', 'zara', 'abc'); aList = list(aTuple) print "List elements : ", aList
When we run above program, it produces following result −
List elements : [123, 'xyz', 'zara', 'abc']
