In several of the matplotlib examples, I encounter statements using
the built-in Python zip function. The really cool use is shown below.
a = [(0,0),(1,2),(4,3)]
[(0, 1, 4), (0, 2, 3)]
Now this use of '*a' as argument does not seem to be documented anywhere.
How does it work? Why do you need the * ? Probably really simple, I
just don't understand.
Thanks for any help,
