for and if in one line

Postby johann99 » Thu Sep 19, 2013 6:59 pm

I'm trying to achieve a for-if-statement in one line:
I have a zipped list of lists and want to iterate through the entries and check for something.

def some_function(Q_chosen, Number_chosen, Energy_chosen, info_field_calc):
for Q_out, fieldreal_out, Number_out, Energy_out, Vebit_out in info_field_calc:
if Q_out == Q_chosen and Number_out == Number_chosen and Energy_out == Energy_chosen:
listfields = fieldreal_out
return listfields

I want to get the for and if statement in one line using the data types that I'm already using now. Is that possible?
Thanks a lot in advance!

you would use a list comp:
Code: Select all
l = [x for x in [1,2,3,4] if x%2==0]

1) read this, especially regarding code tags.
2) you can mix for and if in a single line easily, e.g.:
Code: Select all
[(x*18,y) for (x,y) in zip(range(5), range(10,60,10)) if x % 2 == 0]

but it's hard from your post to understand what exactly you want and especially why do you need to put if and for in a single line.
What does your function return if the inner condition is never satisfied?

OOPS: metulburr beat me on this one:-).
