Python equivalent for PHP's implode?

Questions:

Is there an equivalent for PHP’s implode in Python? I’ve read in and split up a set of delimited words, and now I want to sort them out in random orders and print the words out with spaces in between.

implode — Join array elements with a string

Answers:

Use the strings join-method.

print ' '.join(['word1', 'word2', 'word3'])

You can join any iterable (not only the list used here) and of course you can use any string (not only ' ') as the delimiter.

If you want a random order like you said in your question use shuffle.

Okay I’ve just found a function that does what I wanted to do;

I read in a file with words in a format like:
Jack/Jill/my/kill/name/bucket

I then split it up using the .split method and once I had the word into an array, I connected the words with this method:

concatenatedString = ' - '.join(myWordList)
# ie: delimeter.join(list)

Thanks for your answers if you have anymore!
