backports — Python Backports#

This module contains backports to support older Python versions.

backports.batched(iterable, n)[source]#

Batch data from the iterable into tuples of length n.

(0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9)
>>> print(next(i))
(10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19)
>>> print(next(i))
(20, 21, 22, 23, 24)
>>> print(next(i))
