I have no idea what you mean by that, can you give a more
specific example?

Are you trying to extract 2 values out of a list into variables?
Are you trying to save two variable values into a list?

And what kind of list is your example?
It uses a built in function(list) to refer to something that looks
like a cross between a dictionary and an open list but filled
with the same value (or another built in function?)

Can you try using a Python example with real values and tell
us what you want to dowith them. (And try it at the >>> prompt
first, since the most obvious solution is often the right one in
