How can I use a Python list (e.g.
params = ['a',3.4,None]) as parameters to a function, e.g.:
def some_func(a_char,a_float,a_something): # do stuff
You can do this using the splat operator:
This causes the function to receive each list item as a separate parameter. There's a description here: http://docs.python.org/tutorial/controlflow.html#unpacking-argument-lists
This has already been answered perfectly, but since I just came to this page and did not understand immediately I am just going to add a simple but complete example.
def some_func(a_char, a_float, a_something): print a_char params = ['a', 3.4, None] some_func(*params) >> a
