Automatically Generate A List With The English Alphabet In Python

Sometimes you want to get your hands on all the letters in the english alphabet. Here's how:

** Lowercase

You can generate a list of with the full alphabet of lowercase english letters using:

** Uppercase

Uppercase letters can be had with:

** How It Works

The `string.ascii_lowercase` and `string.ascii_uppercase` calls each return single strings with their correspondingly cased alphabets. That is, `abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz` and `ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ`, respectively.

Wrapping a string in `list()` splits each character out individually and returns it as a separate item in a list.

So, calling `list(string.ascii_lowercase)` is equivalent to calling `list('abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz')` which does the split and generates our list `['a', 'b', 'c', ...etc ]`

`string.ascii_lowercase` and `string.ascii_uppercase` are "String Constants". Basically, built-in stuff that does't change (even if the locale does TKTKTKT note what locale is).

There are a few other String Constants for digits and punctuation that you can
