In this tutorial, we will learn about converting python list object to string.

Python List To String

We can use String’s join method for converting List object to String.

Syntax : < String Object >.join(< Iterable Object >)

This method returns a string, which is a concatenation of all the strings in a list. The separator between the elements of the list is a string object on which join method is called. An Exception ( Type Error ) will be raised, if list contains any non-string element.

# create list object and assign it to variable l
l = [‘1′,’2′,’3′,’4′,’5’]

# create single space string and assign it to variable separator
separator = ‘ ‘

# call join() method on separator by passing list l as an argument
output = separator.join(l)

# print the value of variable output

# second example with ‘-‘ as a separator
separator = ‘-‘

output = separator.join(l)
