Python Question

How do I get a empty array of any size I want in python?

I basically want a python equivalent of this in C

int a[x];


but in python I declare an array like

a = []


but the problem is I want to assign random slots with values like

a[4] = 1


but I can't do that with python, since the array is empty

Answer

If by "array" you actually mean a Python list, you can use

a = [0] * 10

or

a = [None] * 10
