If you are using Python 3, range does not create at list, it is a generator. If you're using Python 2.x, use xrange instead of range. xrange is a generator. In Python 3 there is no xrange, they just made range the generator.

Subject: scalable bottleneck
In an email, I received this question as part of a newsletter.
def fetch_squares ( max_root ):
squares = 
for x in range ( max_root ):
squares . append (x **2)
MAX = 5
for square in fetch_squares (MAX ):
do_something_with ( square )
1) Do you see a memory bottleneck here? If so, what is it?
2) Can you think of a way to fix the memory bottleneck?
Want to know if I am trying to solve the correct bottleneck.
I am thinking that the bottleneck is to create a list only to iterate the same list you created sort of doubling the time through.
Is that the correct problem to solve?
If it is then I thought the best way is just to supply the numbers on the fly, a generator.
for x in max_root:
MAX = 5
So then I set up a loop and do whatever is needed. At this time I am creating generator objects. But is this the correct way to go? More of a am I thinking correctly questino.
item = 0
while item < MAX:
item += 1
<generator object supply_squares at 0x0000000004DEAC00> <generator object supply_squares at 0x0000000004DEAC00> <generator object supply_squares at 0x0000000004DEAC00> <generator object supply_squares at 0x0000000004DEAC00> <generator object supply_squares at 0x0000000004DEAC00>
