unnecessary-list-call (C411)#

Derived from the flake8-comprehensions linter.

Fix is always available.

What it does#

Checks for unnecessary list calls around list comprehensions.

Why is this bad?#

It is redundant to use a list call around a list comprehension.


list([f(x) for x in foo])

Use instead

[f(x) for x in foo]

Fix safety#

This rule's fix is marked as unsafe, as it may occasionally drop comments when rewriting the call. In most cases, though, comments will be preserved.
