What i would achieved is that I got the list of elements say that 10 elements in the list, i want to seperate this list into 2,or 3 sublists depends on user input the number. Then these subject contain the number of elements say 2, or 3 depend on user define. How can i do this. For example.
BigList = [e1,e2,e3,e4,e5,e6,e7]
this will be divided into 4 small sublists which is sublist1,sublist2,sublist3,sublist4.These sublists will have maximum of 2 elements inside therefore, sublist1 = [e1,e2], sublist2=[e3,e4],sublist3=[e5,e6] and sublist7=[e7]
I would appreciate that you could help me this problem. I spend so much time to think about it but it's look like i stuck in the maze when trying to divide biglist into small list and small list to nano list.
