Python list of lists

Switch to Dreamhost, and we will move your web site. No kidding.

I just stumbled upon a post/problem in stackoverflow. Here I discuss it and the solution.

First check the following code segment :

>>>visited = [[False]*4]*4
>>>visited[0][1] = True
>>>print visited
>>> [[False, True, False, False], [False, True, False, False], [False, True, False, False], [False, True, False, False]]

Do you see the problem, second element of all the list changed to True! So it means [[False]*4]*4 creates a list that contains reference to the same list [False, False, False,…
