Before defining tuple unpacking we need to understand what is tuple.
Tuple : In Python tuples are used to store immutable object.A tuple is a sequence of immutable Python objects. Tuples are sequences, the tuples cannot be changed and tuples use parentheses. it assigns (RHS)right hand side of values into (LHS)Left hand side. In other way it is called unpacking of a tuple of values into a variable. In unpacking of tuple number of variables on LHS should be equal to number of values in given tuple. In packing, we put values into a new tuple while in unpacking we extract those values into a single variable.
tuple = ("Tutorials Point", 132, "Employees") # tuple packing (companyname , Employerscount ,Information) = tuple # tuple unpacking print(companyname) print(Employerscount) print(Information)
Tutorials Point 132 Employees
tuple = ("RRS College of Engg and Technology", 6000, "Engineering") # tuple packing (college, student, graduates) = tuple # tuple unpacking # print college name print(college) # print no of student print(student) # print type of college print(graduates)
RRS College of Engg and Technology 6000 Engineering
