Python | Convert list of tuples to list of list

This is a quite simple problem but can have a good amount of application due to certain constraints of python language. Because tuples are immutable, they are not easy to process whereas lists are always a better option while processing. Let’s discuss certain ways in which we can convert a list of tuples to list of list.

Method #1 : Using list comprehension
This can easily be achieved using the list comprehension. We just iterate through each list converting the tuples to the list.

# Python3 code to demonstrate
# convert list of tuples to list of list
# using list comprehension
  
# initializing list 
test_list = [(1, 2), (3, 4), (5, 6)]
  
# printing original list 
print("The original list of tuples : " + str(test_list))
  
# using list comprehension
# convert list of tuples to list of list
res = [list(ele) for ele in test_list]
  
# print result
print("The converted list of list : " + str(res))

Output :



The original list of tuples : [(1, 2), (3, 4), (5, 6)]
The converted list of list : [[1, 2], [3, 4], [5, 6]]

 

Method #2 : Using map() + list
We can use the combination of map function and list operator to perform this particular task. The map function binds each tuple and converts it into list.
