 # Python | Convert string to list of tuples

Method # 1: Using loop + ` split () + replace () `
This is a brute force method to accomplish this task. In this we perform the task of extracting and re-converting tuples to a list in a loop using the split () and replace () functions.

` `

``` # Python3 code to demonstrate how it works # Convert string to list of tuples # using loop + replace () + split ()   # initialization string test_str = "(1, 3, 4), (5, 6, 4), (1, 3, 6) "    # print the original line print ( "The original string is:" + test_str)    # Convert string to list of tuples # using loop + replace () + split () res = [] temp = [] for token in test_str.split ( "," ): num = int (token.replace ( "(" , " "). replace (" ) "," "))  temp.append (num) if ")" in token: res.append ( tuple (temp)) temp = []   # print result print ( "List after conversion from string:" + str (res)) ```

` ` Output:

` The original string is: (1, 3, 4), (5, 6, 4), (1, 3, 6) List after conversion from string: [(1, 3, 4), (5, 6, 4), (1, 3, 6) ] `

Method # 2: Using `eval()`
This built-in function can also be used to accomplish this task. This function internally evaluates the string and returns a transformed list of tuples as desired.

 ` # Python3 code to demonstrate how it works ` ` # Convert string to list of tuples ` ` # using eval () ` ` `  ` # initialization string ` ` test_str ` ` = ` ` "(1, 3, 4), (5, 6, 4), (1, 3, 6)" `   ` # print the original line ` ` print ` ` (` ` "The original string is:" ` ` + ` ` test_str) ` `   # Convert string to list of tuples # using eval () ```` res = list ( eval (test_str))   # print result print ( "List after conversion from string:" + str (res)) ```

Output:

` The original string is: (1, 3, 4), (5, 6, 4), (1, 3, 6) List after conversion from string: [(1, 3, 4 ), (5, 6, 4), (1, 3, 6)] `
