I am having a list that contains 1003 number of elements:


where, len(data)= say 1003

I want to create a subset of this list (data) by dividing the original list into parts of 100. So, as a result:

data_chunk1=[.....] #first 100 items of list data

data_chunk2=[.....] #second 100 items of list data




data_chunk11=[.....] # remainder of the entries,& its len <=100, len(data_chunk_11)=3

Is there a pythonic way to achieve this task?

You can execute the below code:

chunks = [data[x:x+100] for x in range(0, len(data), 100)]

If you are working with python 2.x then use the xrange(), changing the above code to:

chunks = [data[x:x+100] for x in xrange(0, len(data), 100)]
