Say I have two lists:
How could I compare list1 and list2 such that I would get an output like:
So that it goes in order
Here's my code:
h= for i in range(len(change2)): for j in range(len(atom)): if atom[j]==atom[i]: h.append("H") else: h.append("-") print h
Both change2 and atom have letters with a particular order. atom has 479 letters and change2 has 188 letters. I want an output that is a list with 479 elements. I want to scan through atom until the first element is found in change2. I want the list to have elements "H" if they match and "-" if they do not. My code is giving me a huge list! I'm not sure how to make it ordered.
