split in python without using comma [CLOSED]

+1 vote
27 views

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']
print(random.choice(pie))

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():
 new_songs.append(s)
 else:
 old_songs.append(s)

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?
