Map/Iterating through List of Python Object
Is there a way to iterate and call a function on a list of user-defined Python objects with multiple attributes? Let's suppose it's called Entry, with attribute name, and age.
Such that I can say something to the effect of
def func(name, age): //do something def start(list_of_entries) map(func, list_of_entries.name(), list_of_entries.age()) //but obviously the .name and .age of the object, not the iterable //these are the only two attributes of the class
Was thinking about using functools.partial() but not sure if that is even valid in this case.
I suppose you could use a lambda function:
>>> def start(list_of_entries): ... map((lambda x:func(x.name,x.age)), list_of_entries)
But why not just use a loop?:
>>> def start(list_of_entries): ... for x in list_of_entries: func(x.name, x.age)
or if you need the results of func:
>>> def start(list_of_entries): ... return [func(x.name, x.age) for x in list_of_entries]
