split in python without using comma [CLOSED]

+1 vote

How can I use the '.split()' method (am I right in calling it a method?) without instead of writing each comma between words in the pie list in the following code? Also, is there a way to use .split instead of typing the apostrophes?

import random
pie=['keylime', 'peach', 'apple', 'cherry', 'pecan']

I think you are referring to this:

 pie = 'keylime peach apple cherry pecan'.split()

While it's easier to type, and does save a few characters, I think the original list is clearer to a reader of your program.

I have a list, songs, which I want to divide into two groups.
Essentially, I want:

new_songs = [s for s in songs if s.is_new()]
old_songs = [s for s in songs if not s.is_new()]

but I don't want to make two passes over the list. I could do:

new_songs = []
old_songs = []
for s in songs:
 if s.is_new():

Which works, but is klunky compared to the two-liner above. This seems like a common enough thing that I was expecting to find something in itertools which did this. I'm thinking something along the lines of:

matches, non_matches = isplit(lambda s: s.is_new, songs)

Does such a thing exist?

Is it possible to say to a BufferedReader stream "give me all the bytes you have available in the buffer, or do one OS call and give me everything you get back"? The problem is that the "number of bytes" argument to read1() isn't optional, so I can't do available_bytes = fd.read1().

I need this because I want to decode the returned bytes from UTF-8, and I *might* get a character split across the boundary of any arbitrary block size I choose. (I'm happy to ignore the possibility that the *source* did a flush part-way through a character).

I don't really want to have to do incremental encoding if I can avoid it - it looks hard...
