Iterator slicing

We discussed in the iterators lesson how Python iterators relate to Haskell lists. If you’re familiar with the itertools itertools module, these next few lessons are to help you get started quickly with Haskell’s Data.List Data.List module. We will also discuss a few of Python’s built-in functions. Python built-in functions All of the functions that we discuss here return iterators.

In all of the Python code examples, we assume that everything from itertools is imported:

from itertools import *

We’ll start by introducing islice, itertools.islice because we’ll need to use islice to demonstrate some of the other itertools functions.
