I have a
list and an
iterator that contain the same data. I have the list so that I can return the random element using
random.choice. I have made an iterator from the list using the
itertools.cycle(listname) method so that I can have
round-robin type of accessing elements.
How can I combine both the functions where I should be able access the list of elements
randomly and also get
round-robin kind of the access keeping only one copy of instead of data instead of making it two (list and an iterator)?
import random import itertools list_name = [1,2,3,4,5,6,7] list_name_iterator = itertools.cycle(list_name) def return_random(): return random.choice(list_name) def return_round_robin(): return next(list_name_iterator)
Or how to apply
random.choice() on an
