Read and write lists with Pickle, Array and Pandas

python programming

Read and write lists with Pickle, Array and Pandas

List data need to be serialized before it can be written to a file. Simple uniform data can be stored using arrays, basic text read and write and efficiently with Pandas. Pickled files provide a temporary storage for data, but are not for database applications.

Flatten nested list or generate blocks of nested lists

python programming

Flatten nested list or generate blocks of nested lists

Flatten nested lists into linear set of elements using list comprehension and recursive methods. Chop a flat list into sublists of equal size. Create an infinite list using circular referencing.

For loop and control statements

python programming

For loop and control statements

Control structure to cycle over iterables using for loops. Iterate over integer and high precision number sequences and string sequences. Control loop using break, continue, and else statements.

Concatenate list elements using add, append, extend

python programming

Concatenate list elements using add, append, extend

List methods to concatenate new lists or iterables before or after original list. Append to embed new object as a nested element, and extend to convert iterable to a list of elements joined to the right.

List comprehension with nested conditions

python programming

List comprehension with nested conditions

List comprehension operates on each element of a sequence with conditional expressions to generate a new sequence. There can be hierarchy of loops and conditions that transforms, or filters the original elements.

Clear list using inplace and standard methods

python programming

Clear list using inplace and standard methods

List object has inplace method to remove all elements contained. There are standard techniques to empty out an existing list. Outcomes can be different for the various methods, which need closer examination.

Enumerate and custom counters like skip and loop

python programming

Enumerate and custom counters like skip and loop

Enumerate adds a counter variable to track iteration status. Custom linear or cyclic index variables can be created using generators.

Remove duplicate list elements

python programming

Remove duplicate list elements

Make a list unique by removing duplicated items. Set the order of the elements to first or last appearance and get the counts if duplicated.

Statistics with numeric lists of integers, fractions, and decimals.

python programming

Statistics with numeric lists of integers, fractions, and decimals.

The built-in and statistics modules provide all the necessary methods to calculate summary stats for lists of numbers as integers, floats, high precision decimal, or rational fractions.

Count number of elements, and memory allocated

python programming

Count number of elements, and memory allocated

Length provides a basic count of first level elements with list. Each flat element takes 8 bytes to store and memory is mostly allocated linearly for lists. The structure of a list is determined recursively by nestedness and type of objects in the container.
