The list() method 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. This function also converts characters in a string into a list.
Following is the syntax for list() method −
list( seq )
seq − This is a tuple or string to be converted into list.
This method returns the list.
The following example shows the usage of list() method.
#!/usr/bin/python3 aTuple = (123, 'C++', 'Java', 'Python') list1 = list(aTuple) print ("List elements : ", list1) str = "Hello World" list2 = list(str) print ("List elements : ", list2)
When we run above program, it produces the following result −
List elements : [123, 'C++', 'Java', 'Python'] List elements : ['H', 'e', 'l', 'l', 'o', ' ', 'W', 'o', 'r', 'l', 'd']
