Hi, I have a list and I need to convert it to a text but i want to call this list, so I don't want to copy and paste the result in text = " "

I tried text = list(U) (just assume that U is callable, so list(U) gives anything in U as a list) but it didn't work.

Can anyone suggest a way?

Thank you for answering. However, not those, but this worked; where

L = list(U); text = ''+str(L)

-For anyone who is also interested:)

I will assume your list consists of strings. You can build a string using a loop.

for s in L: 

Or, more succinctly, you can use the python join command:

print newtxt
