Python | Replace elements in second list with index of same element in first list

Given two lists of strings, where first list contains all elements of second list, the task is to replace every element in second list with index of elements in first list.

Method #1: Using Iteration

# Python code to replace every element 
# in second list with index of first element.
  
# List Initialization
Input1 = ['cut', 'god', 'pass'
Input2 = ['god', 'cut', 'cut', 'cut'
          'god', 'pass', 'cut', 'pass']
  
# List Initialization
Output = []
  
# Using iteration
for x in Input2:
    for y in Input1:
        if x == y:
            Output.append(Input1.index(y))
  
# Printing output
print("initial 2 list are")
print(Input1, "\n", Input2)
print("Second list after replacement is:", Output)

Output:



initial 2 list are
['cut', 'god', 'pass'] 
 ['god', 'cut', 'cut', 'cut', 'god', 'pass', 'cut', 'pass']
Second list after replacement is: [1, 0, 0, 0, 1, 2, 0, 2]

 
Method #2: Using List comprehension

# Python code to replace every element

# List initialization
Input1 = ['cut', 'god', 'pass']
  
# using enumeate
temp = {y:x for x, y in enumerate(Input1)}
  
# List initialization
Input2 = ['god', 'cut', 'cut', 'cut'
          'god', 'pass', 'cut', 'pass']
  
# Using list comprehension
Output = [temp.get(elem) for elem in Input2]
  
# Printing output
print("initial 2 list are")
print(Input1, "\n", Input2)
print("Second list after replacement is:", Output)

Output:

initial 2 list are
['cut', 'god', 'pass'] 
 ['god', 'cut', 'cut', 'cut', 'god', 'pass', 'cut', 'pass']
Second list after replacement is: [1, 0, 0, 0, 1, 2, 0, 2]

elem = {k: i for i, k in enumerate(Input1)}
Output = list(map(elem.get, Input2))
  
# Printing output
print("initial 2 list are")
print(Input1, "\n", Input2)
print("Second list after replacement is:", Output)

Output:

initial 2 list are
['cut', 'god', 'pass'] 
 ['god', 'cut', 'cut', 'cut', 'god', 'pass', 'cut', 'pass']
Second list after replacement is: [1, 0, 0, 0, 1, 2, 0, 2]
