Python syntax

List comprehension

List comprehension produce complete list with compact syntax:

[x**2 for x in xrange(1,10)]
[x+y for x in xrange(1,10) for y in xrange(1,10)]
[x-y for x in xrange(1,10) for y in xrange(1,10) if x>y]

xlist = [x**2 for x in xrange(1,10)]
print xlist[0], xlist[2], xlist[-1]
print xlist[2:4]
print sum(xlist), sum(xlist)

Generator expression

Generator expression produce generator with compact syntax:

(x**2 for x in xrange(1,10))
(x+y for x in xrange(1,10) for y in xrange(1,10))

print [x for x in (x**2 for x in xrange(1,10))]

xgen = (x**2 for x in xrange(1,10))
try:
    xgen[0]
except TypeError:
    print "'generator' object has no attribute '__getitem__'"
print sum(xlist), sum(xlist)

Parentheses is required only if expression is ambiguous.
