<div><FONT FACE=3D"Arial" SIZE=3D3> Hi,</FONT></div>
<div>&nbsp;</div>
<FONT FACE=3D"Arial" SIZE=3D3> </FONT><div><FONT FACE=3D"Arial" SIZE=3D3>=
I'd like to have 'an array of arrays'.&nbsp; Yes, yes I know=
it's not an array in python but a list.&nbsp; What I'd like to=
do is something to the effect of:</FONT></div>
<div>&nbsp;</div>
<FONT FACE=3D"Arial" SIZE=3D3> </FONT><div><FONT FACE=3D"Arial" SIZE=3D3>=
data =3D [data1[], data2[], data3[]]</FONT></div>
<div>&nbsp;</div>
<FONT FACE=3D"Arial" SIZE=3D3> </FONT><div><FONT FACE=3D"Arial" SIZE=3D3>=
but that just gives me an error.&nbsp; I thought of maybe using=
a dictionary?</FONT></div>
<div>&nbsp;</div>
<FONT FACE=3D"Arial" SIZE=3D3> </FONT><div><FONT FACE=3D"Arial" SIZE=3D3>=
The idea is that I can have a for: loop that assigns values to=
the lists within the main list in order from first to=
last.&nbsp; As in the e.g. data1.assign(x1),=
data2.assign(x2).</FONT></div>
