### List of lists of lists of lists...

I would like to have a list of lists N times deep, and my solution is (in
pseudocode):

def deep(x):
a=[x]
return a

mylist=[]
for N: mylist=deep(mylist)

Is there a more elegant way to do it?

The maine idea is: from a list having the numbre of steps along N
dimensions, generate a list with an item at each possible point.

Example 1: N=2 list=[2,3] result=[[1,2],[1,2],[1,2]]
Example 2: N=3 list=[3,1,2] result=[[[1,2,3]],[[1,2,3]]]

Hint : what's exactly the difference between deep(x) and [x] ?

for N:
mylist = [mylist]

I'm afraid I don't understand. Could you forgive my stupidity and
re-explain this a bit more clearly ?

Numarray does this sort of thing, but you have to familiarize yourself
with its indexing conventions:

py> import numarray
py> numarray.ones((3,2))
array([[1, 1],
[1, 1],
[1, 1]])
py> numarray.ones((1,2,3))
array([[[1, 1, 1],
[1, 1, 1]]])

numpy is the successor to numarray, so if you are just starting with arrays,
please get started with numpy. It should also be noted that numpy can create
arrays of objects as well as arrays of numbers.

In [1]: from numpy import *

In [2]: empty((1,2,3), dtype=object)
Out[2]:
array([[[None, None, None],
[None, None, None]]], dtype=object)
