Copy Tuple Python

  • by

To copy a tuple in Python, you can use the tuple() constructor or the slicing technique. However, it’s essential to remember that tuples are immutable, meaning their elements can’t be modified once created. Here are two ways to copy a tuple:

1. Using the tuple() constructor:

original_tuple = (1, 2, 3, 4, 5)
copied_tuple = tuple(original_tuple)

2. Using the slicing technique:

original_tuple = (1, 2, 3, 4, 5)
copied_tuple = original_tuple[:]

Copy the Tuple Python example

Here’s an example of how to copy a tuple in Python using the slicing technique:

# Original tuple
original_tuple = (1, 2, 3, 4, 5)

# Copy the tuple using slicing
copied_tuple = original_tuple[:]

# Modify the copied tuple
copied_tuple = copied_tuple + (6,)

print("Original tuple:", original_tuple)
print("Copied tuple:", copied_tuple)


Copy Tuple Python

As you can see, the original tuple remains unchanged, and the copied tuple is a separate entity. You can work with the copied tuple independently without affecting the original tuple.
