I would like to loop through a list checking each item against the one following it.
Is there a way I can loop through all but the last item using for x in y? I would prefer to do it without using indexes if I can.
freespace answered my actual question, which is why I accepted the answer, but SilentGhost answered the question I should have asked.
Apologies for the confusion.
for x in y[:-1]
y is a generator, then the above will not work.
the easiest way to compare the sequence item with the following:
for i, j in zip(a, a[1:]): # compare i (the current) to j (the following)
