How to convert a set to a list in python?

The Solution to How to convert a set to a list in python? is


It is already a list

type(my_set)
>>> <type 'list'>

Do you want something like

my_set = set([1,2,3,4])
my_list = list(my_set)
print my_list
>> [1, 2, 3, 4]

EDIT : Output of your last comment

>>> my_list = [1,2,3,4]
>>> my_set = set(my_list)
>>> my_new_list = list(my_set)
>>> print my_new_list
[1, 2, 3, 4]

I'm wondering if you did something like this :

>>> set=set()
>>> set([1,2])
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
TypeError: 'set' object is not callable
