Does this do what you are looking for?
>>> s = 'abcdefg';
>>> a = ;
>>> a += s;
['a', 'b', 'c', 'd', 'e', 'f', 'g']

Subject: Converting a string to an array?
While working on a Jumble-esque program, I was trying to get a
string into a character array. Unfortunately, it seems to choke
on the following
s = "abcefg"
File "/usr/lib/python2.3/random.py", line 250, in shuffle
x[i], x[j] = x[j], x[i]
TypeError: object doesn't support item assignment
The closest hack I could come up with was
s = "abcdefg"
a = 
s = "".join(a)
This lacks the beauty of most python code, and clearly feels like
there's somethign I'm missing. Is there some method or function
I've overlooked that would convert a string to an array with less
