But before that you need to make sure that you know a few terms in python. So here it is:
- Python set: A list like data type that can store heterogeneous data. Only difference is that it only stores unique elements. No two elements can be the same.
- Type casting: changing the data type of a variable.
Now let’s look into how to do it:
- Type cast the existing list into a set
- Type cast it back to a list
- Enjoy non-redundant data
I am sure that doesn’t require any explanation. Still, if you don’t understand, what I am trying to do is to convert a python list to a python set, so that the duplicate elements are automatically removed. And then, we just convert it back to a list so that we can use it normally with the list functionalities. So, basically the removal of duplicate data is handled by the type casting. So we won’t have to worry about any kind of iterations.
