Prerequisite: Queue in Python

Here given a queue and our task is to dump the queue into list or array. We are to see two methods to achieve the objective of our solution.

Example 1: 

In this example, we will create a queue using the collection package and then cast it into the list

Python3




# Python program to
# demonstrate queue implementation
# using collections.dequeue
   
from collections import deque
   
# Initializing a queue
q = deque()
   
# Adding elements to a queue
q.append('a')
q.append('b')
q.append('c')
  
# display the queue
print("Initial queue")
print(q,"\n")
  
# display the type
print(type(q))

Output:

Initial queue
deque(['a', 'b', 'c']) 

<class 'collections.deque'>

Let’s create a list and cast into it:

Python3




# convert into list
li = list(q)
  
# display
print("Convert into the list")
print(li)
print(type(li))

Output:

Convert into the list
['a', 'b', 'c']
<class 'list'>

Example 2:

In this example, we will create a queue using the queue module and then cast it into the list.

Python3




from queue import Queue
  
# Initializing a queue
que = Queue()
  
# Adding elements to a queue
que.put(1)
que.put(2)
que.put(3)
que.put(4)
que.put(5)
  
# display the queue
print("Initial queue")
print(que.queue)
  
# casting into the list
li = list(que.queue)
print("\nConverted into the list")
print(li)

Output:

Initial queue
deque([1, 2, 3, 4, 5])

Converted into the list
[1, 2, 3, 4, 5]
