Python zip() Function

Python zip() Function

Python zip() function is used to return a zip object that is the iterator of the tuples where the primary item present in each passed iterator is paired together then the second item present in each passed iterator are paired together etc.

Syntax:
zip(iterator1, iterator2, iterator3 ...)

Parameter Values

Parameter Description
iterator1, iterator2, iterator3 ... This parameter defines the Iterator objects that will be joined together.
Here is an example of Python zip() function:

a = ("Kia", "Nisha", "Jenny")
b = ("Jerry", "Rohit", "Mike")
x = zip(a, b)
print(tuple(x))

Output:
(('Kia', 'Jerry'), ('Nisha', 'Rohit'), ('Jenny', 'Mike'))
Example 2:

a = ("John", "Koko", "Mike")
b = ("Jenny", "Christy", "Tutu", "Vicky")
x = zip(a, b)
print(tuple(x))

Output:
(('John', 'Jenny'), ('Koko', 'Christy'), ('Mike', 'Tutu'))
