4.3. The range() Function

If you do need to iterate over a sequence of numbers, the built-in function range() comes in handy. It generates lists containing arithmetic progressions:

>>>
>>> range(10)[0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9]

The given end point is never part of the generated list; range(10) generates a list of 10 values, the legal indices for items of a sequence of length 10

 

 

When I used the same little piece of code in my python interpreter web console it gave me :

>>> range(10)

(0,10) and not

[0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9]

why?
