# Better way to get sublist in python

I am working on the following problem:
This function returns a list of all possible sublists in L of length n without skipping elements in L. The sublists in the returned list should be ordered in the way they appear in L, with those sublists starting from a smaller index being at the front of the list.

`Example 1, if L = [10, 4, 6, 8, 3, 4, 5, 7, 7, 2] and n = 4`
then your function should return the list
`[[10, 4, 6, 8], [4, 6, 8, 3], [6, 8, 3, 4], [8, 3, 4, 5], [3, 4, 5, 7], [4, 5, 7, 7], [5, 7, 7, 2]]`

My solution works but how can I make it shorter? What is a better way to do this?

``````def getSublists(L, n):

newN = n
myList = []
for i in range(len(L)):
orginalLen = L[i:n]
if(len(orginalLen) == n):
myList.append(L[i:n])
n = n + 1
else:
myList.append(L[i:n])
n = n + 1
if(newN == 1):
print(myList)
else:
print(myList[:len(myList)-(n-1)])
getSublists([10, 4, 6, 8, 3, 4, 5, 7, 7, 2],4)

getSublists([1], 1)

getSublists([0, 0, 0, 0, 0], 2)

OUTPUT
[[10, 4, 6, 8], [4, 6, 8, 3], [6, 8, 3, 4], [8, 3, 4, 5], [3, 4, 5, 7], [4, 5, 7, 7], [5, 7, 7, 2]]
[[1]]
[[0, 0], [0, 0], [0, 0], [0, 0]]

``````l = [1,2,3,4,5,6,87,9]
