How can I compare two ordered lists in python?
If I have one long list:
myList = [0,2,1,0,2,1] that I split into two lists:
a = [0,2,1] b = [0,2,1]
how can I compare these two lists to see if they are both equal/identical, with the constraint that they have to be in the same order?
I have seen q asking to compare two lists by sorting them, but in my specific case, I am not checking for a sorted comparison, but identical list comparison.
Just use the classic
>>> [0,1,2] == [0,1,2] True >>> [0,1,2] == [0,2,1] False >>> [0,1] == [0,1,2] False
Lists are equal if elements at the same index are equal. Ordering is taken into account then.
