How to merge lists into a list of tuples?


In Python 2:

>>> list_a = [1, 2, 3, 4]>>> list_b = [5, 6, 7, 8]>>> zip(list_a, list_b)[(1, 5), (2, 6), (3, 7), (4, 8)]

In Python 3:

>>> list_a = [1, 2, 3, 4]>>> list_b = [5, 6, 7, 8]>>> list(zip(list_a, list_b))[(1, 5), (2, 6), (3, 7), (4, 8)]


In python 3.0 zip returns a zip object. You can get a list out of it by calling list(zip(a, b)).


You can use map lambda

a = [2,3,4]b = [5,6,7]c = map(lambda x,y:(x,y),a,b)

This will also work if there lengths of original lists do not match
