Python | Merge Tuple String List values to String
  • Last Updated : 03 Nov, 2019

Sometimes, while working with records, we can have a problem in which any element of record can be of type string but mistakenly processed as list of characters. This can be a problem while working with a lot of data. Let’s discuss certain ways in which this problem can be solved.

Method #1 : Using list comprehension + join()
The combination of above functionalities can be used to achieve to solution of above task. In this, we get the character list using list comprehension and conversion task is performed by join().




# Python3 code to demonstrate working of
# Merge Tuple String List values to String
# using list comprehension + join()
  
# initialize list
test_list = [(['g', 'f', 'g'], 1), (['i', 's'], 2), (['b', 'e', 's', 't'], 3)]
  
# printing original list
print("The original list : " + str(test_list))
  
# Merge Tuple String List values to String
# using list comprehension + join()
res =  [''.join(i) for i, j in test_list]
  
# printing result
print("The joined character list tuple element to string is : " + str(res))
Output :

The original list : [([‘g’, ‘f’, ‘g’], 1), ([‘i’, ‘s’], 2), ([‘b’, ‘e’, ‘s’, ‘t’], 3)]
The joined character list tuple element to string is : [‘gfg’, ‘is’, ‘best’]

 



Method #2 : Using map() + join() + lambda
The task performed by list comprehension in the above method can be performed by map() and lambda function can be used to construct the logic to achieve the solution to this task.




# Python3 code to demonstrate working of
# Merge Tuple String List values to String
# using map() + join() + lambda
  
# initialize list
test_list = [(['g', 'f', 'g'], 1), (['i', 's'], 2), (['b', 'e', 's', 't'], 3)]
  
# printing original list
print("The original list : " + str(test_list))
  
# Merge Tuple String List values to String
# using map() + join() + lambda
res = list(map(lambda sub : "".join(sub[0]), test_list))
  
# printing result
print("The joined character list tuple element to string is : " + str(res))
Output :

The original list : [([‘g’, ‘f’, ‘g’], 1), ([‘i’, ‘s’], 2), ([‘b’, ‘e’, ‘s’, ‘t’], 3)]
The joined character list tuple element to string is : [‘gfg’, ‘is’, ‘best’]
