Manipulating the name of lists and using them - Python

Manipulating the name of lists and using them - Python

Hello everyone,

I would like to use a list while I am changing its name.
I have the following lists defined label_SUB1, label_SUB2, label_SUB3 and label_SUB4.

CODE --> Python

for j in range(1,4):
     for i in range(0,205):
            print "AAA," + str(i+12000027+10000*j) + "," + label_SUB[j][i] + ",33,"
            print ",BBB," + label_SUB[j][i] + ","
            print ",CCC," + str(i+11800027+10000*j) 

Thank you for your help!

RE: Manipulating the name of lists and using them - Python


Assuming label_SUB1 & co. are global variables, something like this :

CODE --> 2

print "AAA," + str(i+12000027+10000*j) + "," + globals()["label_SUB" + `j`][i] + ",33," 
Not a great coding habit though.
