Python | Concatenate All Records
  • Last Updated : 10 Jan, 2020

Sometimes, while working with data in form of records, we can have a problem in which we need to concatenate elements of all the records received. This is a very common application that can occur in Data Science domain. Let’s discuss certain ways in which this task can be performed.

Method #1 : Using generator expression + join()
This is the most basic method to achieve solution to this task. In this, we iterate over whole nested lists using generator expression and get the concatenated elements using join().




# Python3 code to demonstrate working of
# Concatenate All Records
# using join() + generator expression
  
# initialize list 
test_list = [('geeksforgeeks ', 'is' ), (' best', ' for'), (' all', ' geeks')]
  
# printing original list 
print("The original list : " + str(test_list))
  
# Concatenate All Records
# using join() + generator expression
res = "".join(j for i in test_list for j in i)
  
# printing result
print("The Concatenated elements of list is : " + res)
Output :
The original list : [('geeksforgeeks ', 'is'), (' best', ' for'), (' all', ' geeks')]
The Concatenated elements of list is : geeksforgeeks is best for all geeks

 

Method #2 : Using join() + map() + chain.from_iterable()
The combination of above methods can also be used to perform this task. In this, the extension of concatenation is done by combination of map() and from_iterable().






# Python3 code to demonstrate working of
# Concatenate All Records
# using join() + map() + chain.from_iterable()
from itertools import chain
  
# initialize list 
test_list = [('geeksforgeeks ', 'is' ), (' best', ' for'), (' all', ' geeks')]
  
# printing original list 
print("The original list : " + str(test_list))
  
# Concatenate All Records
# using join() + map() + chain.from_iterable()
res = "".join(map(str, chain.from_iterable(test_list)))
  
# printing result
print("The Concatenated elements of list is : " + str(res))
Output :
The original list : [('geeksforgeeks ', 'is'), (' best', ' for'), (' all', ' geeks')]
The Concatenated elements of list is : geeksforgeeks is best for all geeks
