Thank you Fogelbird and Jeff.
I actually tried to find out if such function existed. I did
no Python documentation found for 'count'
Anyway. More than counting, I am interested in list subsetting in a simple
way. Forget about counting. Say I have a list of lists and I want to pull
only the rows where the second "column" equals 3.14.
It is a very simple concept. I wonder if python can keep it simple despite
being a general purpose programming language, not a numerical programming
