Lists in Python
Lists are used to store multiple items sequentially in one variable. Equivalent of an array in other languages. Lists are mutable.
list_name =  #empty list to start list_name2 = [item1, item2] #non empty list to start list_name.append(item) #add to the list list_name[index] #access the item at the list index
Items inside of the list can be of different types. Data structures and other lists can also be stored within a list.
The array index range is from 0 to size minus 1. Negative indices start at the end of the array and work backwards.
Lists can be added (using addition operator) or concatenated (using the extend function). There are many other list functions, which can be found in the PyDocs.
cities = ["Toronto", "San Francisco", "Seattle"] print (cities) #prints Toronto
