Notes With lists Not pythonic to mix types can iterate, slice and dice, search, get lengths, transmute them (for e.g. reverse items in them) just like strings can have lists of lists! lists are mutable, unlike strings. can change items/elements of a list If i create a list from another list, the new list items reference the old list items if i want to copy elements from a list rather than reference them, I’ll go newlist = oldlist[:] which will copy the elements from the old list into the new one, rather than create references to the old ones Realise that there is a difference between changing the values of a variable and between changing elements of a list....
