Hello,
I have two lists and would save them in a tuple.
a = [1,2,3]
b = ['a','b','c']
with the next statement I can do that:
t = [(x,y), for x in a for y in b]
This gives the next list:
[(1,'a'),(1,'b'),(1,'c'), (2,'a'),(2,'b'),(2,'c'), (3,'a'),(3,'b'),
(3,'c')]
But I want the next list:
[(1,'a'),(2,'b'),(3,'c')]
Would somebody tell me how I can solve this problem?
Regards,
Nader 4 1168

Use the zip() builtin.
zip(a, b)
