# Import the collections library import collections
Create A Tuple
A tuple is a simple, efficient data type widely used in Python. However, it uses numerical indexes which can be frustrating to use when tuples are large.
# Create a long tuple employee = ('Jane', 'Miller', 'Engineer', '29', '3023 Homespun Place', '#4023', 'Jacksonville', 'FL', '49342', 'USA' )
# Print tuple employee
('Jane', 'Miller', 'Engineer', '29', '3023 Homespun Place', '#4023', 'Jacksonville', 'FL', '49342', 'USA')
Select State Value From Tuple
# The state is the 7th element in the tuple, so the index is 6 employee
Create A Named Tuple
Named tuples are special variation of tuples that are just as memory efficent but allows you to select elements in tuples by name.
# Create a new named tuple class called Person Person = collections.namedtuple('Person', # containing these fields 'first_name lastname job age address_1 address_2 city, state, zip, country')
# Create a named tuple instance called customer customer = Person(first_name = 'Jane', lastname = 'Miller', job = 'Engineer', age = '29', address_1 = '3023 Homespun Place', address_2 = '#4023', city = 'Jacksonville', state = 'FL', zip = '49342', country = 'USA' )
# View the state customer.state
