The Python tuple() function (or tuple() constructor) is used to create tuple using an iterable object. An iterable object can be any data structure like list, tuple, set, string and dictionary etc. The range() function can also be used as an iterable.

Syntax

tuple(iterable)

Parameters

iterable Required. iterable like list, tuple, set, string , dictionary and range() etc.

Example:

In the below example, tuple() function is used to create tuple using a given iterable.

#using list as iterable
MyTuple = tuple(['JAN', 'FEB', 'MAR', 'APR'])
print(MyTuple)

#using tuple as iterable
MyTuple = tuple(('JAN', 'FEB', 'MAR', 'APR'))
print(MyTuple)

#using string as iterable
MyTuple = tuple('string')
print(MyTuple)

#using range() as iterable
MyTuple = tuple(range(1,6))
print(MyTuple)

The output of the above code will be:

('JAN', 'FEB', 'MAR', 'APR')
('JAN', 'FEB', 'MAR', 'APR')
('s', 't', 'r', 'i', 'n', 'g')
(1, 2, 3, 4, 5)

Example: Using dictionary as an iterable

In the below example, tuple() function is used to create tuple from a given dictionary.

MyDict = {
  'name': 'John',
  'age': 25,
  'city': 'London'
}
MyTuple = tuple(MyDict)
print(MyTuple)

MyTuple = tuple(MyDict.keys())
print(MyTuple)

MyTuple = tuple(MyDict.values())
print(MyTuple)

The output of the above code will be:

('name', 'age', 'city')
('name', 'age', 'city')
('John', 25, 'London')
