Python | Remove square brackets from a list

Method: Using str () + slicing the list
A shortcut that can be applied without having to access every element of the list is to transform the whole list to a string, and then remove the starting and last characters of the list using the list slicing. It won’t work if the list contains a string. In this case, each element can be joined using join () , as discussed in many other articles.

# Python3 code for demonstrations
# Remove square brackets from the list
# using str () + slice the list

 
# initialize the list

test_list = [ 5 , 6 , 8 , 9 , 10 , 21 ]

 
# print original list

print ( "The original list is:" + str (test_list))

  
# Remove square brackets from the list
# using str () + slice the list

res = str (test_list) [ 1 : - 1 ]

 
# print result

print ( "List after removing square brackets:" + res)

Output:

 The original list is: [5, 6, 8, 9, 10, 21] List after removing square brackets: 5, 6, 8, 9, 10, 21
