In a Python for loop that iterates over a list we can write:

for item in list:

print item

and it neatly goes through all the elements in the list. Is there a way to know within the loop how many times I've been looping so far? For instance, I want to make a list and after I've processed ten elements I want to do something with them.

The alternatives I thought about would be something like:

count=0 

for item in list:

print item 

count +=1 

if count % 10 == 0:

print 'did ten'

Or:

for count in range(0,len(list)):

print list[count]

if count % 10 == 0:

print 'did ten'

Is there a better way (just like the for item in list) to get the number of iterations so far?

For getting loop count inside a Python for loop you can use the pythonic way is to use enumerate:

for idx,item in enumerate(list):
