Dear all,

I filled a list with very informative data (for me, anyway 8-)). Before processing (like eliminating 
the duplicates) I wanted to save the list.

I used:
	mySavedList = myList

That doesn't work. I understand the problem. The copy is not the data but the reference. This 
can be checked with id(mySavedList) which is the same as id(myList). I presume, I have to do 
an explicit copy ('deep copy' is the correct name??).

Does anyknow the correct function of method to do the trick?
