I will appreciate the help from the more skillfull pythonistas..
I have a small app that generates a sequence like
This values I am putting in a list.
So I have a list = [00341,01741,03254]
after the programs find the sequence 03401 this sequence is "new" so
it appends on the list. But I want to avoid that as the values are
already on the first sequence of the list (00341).
If I try to use a "in" statement it will give false. as 00341 is
different from 00341 (but for my goal not..)
How can I check against this list and avoid to put "different"
sequences but same values?
as 34100 --> dont append on the list
14300 ---> dont append on the list
05321 --> append to the list.
Am I doing some conceptual error using lists?
There is a better approach?
