Returning multiple values from a function in Python

We can return multiple values from a function in Python by simply comma separating the values we would like to return.

Examples

Return two values

def my_func():
return 1, 2

my_func()
(1, 2)

We return the two values in a tuple.

Return as list

We can alternatively return the multiple values in a list:

def my_func():
return [1, 2]

my_func()
[1, 2]

Unpacking

To unpack the returned values into variables:

a, b = my_func()
print(a)
print(b)
1
2

We can see that 1 gets stored to variable a, and 2 gets stored to variable b.
