Python - Zip not even length string


zip function truncates result tuples at the length of the shortest sequence when the argument lengths differ.

In the following, we zip two strings to pick out characters in parallel, but the result has only as many tuples as the length of the shortest sequence:


S1 = 'abc' 
S2 = 'xyz123' # from   w  w  w .jav  a2  s  .com

print( list(zip(S1, S2)) )                       # Truncates at len(shortest)
