You can use Python 3.X's extended sequence-unpacking assignment syntax to extract items and sections of sequences within sequences.
a, b, c = (1, 2, 3) # Tuple assignment # from ww w . j a v a 2 s .co m for (a, b, c) in [(1, 2, 3), (4, 5, 6)]: # Used in for loop print(a, b, c)
In Python 3.X, a sequence can be assigned to a more general set of names with a starred name to collect multiple items.
We can use the same syntax to extract parts of nested sequences in the for loop:
a, *b, c = (1, 2, 3, 4) # Extended seq assignment # w w w. j ava 2 s . c o m for (a, *b, c) in [(1, 2, 3, 4), (5, 6, 7, 8)]: print(a, b, c)
