I have a list with two values, either yes or no. And a sequence which is a list of strings, depending on whether the list says yes or no, I want to send 8 consecutive lines of the sequence file into one of two text files (yes.txt and no.txt) depending on what the list said, and loop this for every item in the list.
assuming that sequence is a list of lines from a sequence document you could try the following
for i in range(0, len(YesOrNo)): start = i + (7*i) end = 8 * (i+1) if YesOrNo[i] == 'yes': Y.writelines(sequence[start:end]) elif YesOrNo[i] == 'no': X.writelines(sequence[start:end])
I am using writelines because I am assuming that sequence is list of stings, you could also use write and just replace sequence with
