Hi all,

I can use list comprehension to create list quickly. So I expected that I
can created tuple quickly with the same syntax. But I found that the
same syntax will get a generator, not a tuple. Here is my example:

In [147]: a = (i for i in range(10))

In [148]: b = [i for i in range(10)]

In [149]: type(a)
Out[149]: <type 'generator'>

In [150]: type(b)
Out[150]: <type 'list'>

Is there a way to create a tuple like (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9)
quickly? I already I can use tuple() on a list which is created by list
comprehension to get a desired tuple.
