I am trying to unpack set of phone numbers from a sequence, python shell in turn throws an invalid syntax error. I am using python 2.7.1. Here is the snippet
>>> record = ('Dave', 'firstname.lastname@example.org', '773-555-1212', '847-555-1212') >>> name, email, *phone-numbers = record SyntaxError: invalid syntax >>>
Please explain. Is there any other way of doing the same?
