I had a huge list containing consuming data, as i only need a one pass in a
for statement,
i'm wondering if by doing this with a pop i could save memory ? (as i think
that python
free it after the pop...)
and is there a way to pop from the beginning  of the list ? (i think i could
use reverse but
i don't know if this memory consuming)

>>> a = [1,2,3,4,5,6,7]
>>> while 1:
  f = a.pop()
 except IndexError:
 print f
