[thing, 1, "Description"]
In those languages however, this tuple isn’t finite. Wikipedia defines tuple thusly.
a tuple is a finite ordered list (sequence) of elements.
Python tuples look like this:
mytuple = (thing, 1, "Description")
And is it finite?
>>> mytuple.append("c") Traceback (most recent call last): File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module> AttributeError: 'tuple' object has no attribute 'append'
append attribute, ok. But can you add tuples together?
>>> a = ('a', 'b') >>> a + ('c', 'd') ('a', 'b', 'c', 'd') >>> a ('a', 'b')
You can add tuples together but it’s not mutative.
A syntax quirk is the one element tuple.
>>> type(('c')) <class 'str'> >>> type(('c',)) <class 'tuple'>
Include a comma after the only tuple element to ensure that the tuple is not tokenized as a string.Tweet
