# some excercises with lists
# Set up a list of 4 items
dinner = ["Soup","Chicken","Rice","Water"]
# Change the THIRD one
dinner = "Nan Bread"
# Add two more on the end
dinner += ["Sticky Toffee Pudding","Custard"]
# Insert someting in the 'middle'
# Most basic loop to handle each member of a list by number
num = 0
dinner[num] += " with marmite"
num += 1
# Use a loop like THIS if you don't care about the position no.
for item in dinner:
print("I want some",item)
# But if you want to refer to next, or previous ... you need something like this
for posn in range(0,len(dinner),1):
print("Graham ate all of the ",dinner[posn])
# lists in lists
lunch = [["soup","salad"],["chicken","lamb","rhino"],["Ice Cream"]]
lunch.append("Cheese and Celery")
# printing out lists in lists
for course in lunch:
for option in course:
print(option," or ",end=" ")
# Taking the last item off a list ("popping")
dinner = dinner[:-1]
