Lists in Python

Introduction

 
In this article, I will explain lists in Python.

A list is another type of object. They are used to store an indexed list of items. A list is a collection that is ordered and changeable. In Python lists are written with square brackets, and we use commas as symbols.

The list is used to refer to the index number. Remember that the first position item is 0.

  1. number = ["one""two""three"]    
  2. print(number[0])#0 position is first item    
Output
 
It will print the output screen to the first position item. Remember that the first position item is 0.

Negative index

 
A negative index starts in the last position of the list. -1 is the last position of the list.
 
Example
  1. number = ["one""two""three"]    
  2. print(number[-1])#-1 position is last item.   
Output
 
It will print the output screen to the last position.

Range of index

 
You can specify various indexes by means of specifying where to start and where to quit the range.
 
Syntax
  1. demo= ["list 1""list 2",....]    
  2. print(demo[start position: end position])     
Example
  1. number = ["one""two""three","four","five","six"]    
  2. print(number[1:4])    
  3. #It will print the output screen of the items from position 1 to 4.    
  4. #Remember that the first position item is 0.    
Output
 
It will print the output screen of the items from position 1 to 4.

Change item value

 
Changing the value of a specific item refers to the index number.
 
Example
  1. number = ["one""two""three","four","five","six"]    
  2. number[2]="welcome"#Change 3 position values in “welcome”.    
  3. print(number)    
Output
