Using an interable in place of *args?

Thanks for all the replies -- I think what I want is the *arg
idiom. Amazing that I hadn't encountered it until now!

Over my lunch break I realized that I could do what I wanted with
apply(struct.pack, tuple), but the *arg thing is much tidier.

Thanks again,
