Iterating idiomatically

In this section, we will first explore some idioms that come in handy when we have to deal with iteration in Python. These code recipes will help us get a better idea of the types of things we can do with generators (especially after we have already seen generator expressions), and how to solve typical problems in relation to them.

Once we have seen some idioms, we will move on to exploring iteration in Python in more depth, analyzing the methods that make iteration possible, and how iterable objects work.
