Array of structires or equivalent

Array of structires or equivalent

Array of structires or equivalent

Second basic question...

I am reading and parsing a text file. I want to be able to store the data recovered. I had thought of using an array of structures, so I could have entry[5].variable for example. However in Python this seems not to be possible...?

The nearest seems to be a dictionary of dictionaries...


RE: Array of structires or equivalent

Oh - I think I've sorted it. I can have a list of classes. Each time I append a class to the list it creates a new instance. Even though I have not given the instances individual names, since they are all in their own list elements everything works out ok...

RE: Array of structires or equivalent

A list of class instances works, but it not very nice... I could possible use nested dictionaries, but I'm not sure this is any better really.

The problem is that the list is populated in a class method. If to do this it needs to create instances of inner classes things start to get a bit messy (I think - I may be wrong)
