Python: Clone or copy a list

Sample Solution:

Python Code:

original_list = [10, 22, 44, 23, 4]
new_list = list(original_list)

Sample Output:

[10, 22, 44, 23, 4]                                                                                           
[10, 22, 44, 23, 4]


In the above exercise -

original_list = [10, 22, 44, 23, 4]  -> This line creates a new list called original_list that contains five integer values.

new_list = list(original_list)  -> This line creates a new list called new_list that is a copy of the original_list. The list function is called with original_list as its argument, which creates a new list object with the same elements as original_list.

Python: Tips of the Day

Given a predicate function, fn, and a prop string, this curried function will then take an object to inspect by calling the property and passing it to the predicate:


def tips_check_prop(fn, prop):
  return lambda obj: fn(obj[prop])
check_age = tips_check_prop(lambda x: x >= 25, 'age')
user = {'name': 'Owen', 'age': 25}
