got a basic question that i can't get my hands around.
i'm trying to programatically create/use a list/tuple (or whatever the right
phrase in pyton is!!)
basically, something like:
foo = 
foo =  (and in this case, i really want to have a list called 'cat' to
when i've tried this, i don't get a list called 'cat', instead (as i
expected) the foo is now a  (list))
so foo is now
['cat',  ]
ultimatelly , i want to be able to dynamically create a number of lists that
i name/create/manipulate on the fly, within the test app.
ie, be able to then create a list/array cat = ['a','b','c',....]
a dict doesn't seem to work, as it is essentially a series of key/values,
which isn't exactly what i want...
thoughts/comments/code samples would be reatly appreciated.
looking at various sites/samples cia google hasn't helped...
