Discussion on: Pythonic code: the list comprehension

Thanks for the post!

I think "pythonic" is such an important yet hard to grasp concept.

Quick question: how does the following compare with your last example in terms of trying to be more pythonic?

pairs = list(zip(xs, ys))

Yes, the last example was a bit contrived to illustrate the possibility of nested comprehensions. I'm a big fan of knowing built-in function so I think using zip is a perfectly reasonable and Pythonic alternative.
