Class tuple
Function make_tuple

Exposes a TypeWrapper for the Python type.

Exposes the interface of Python's built-in tuple type. The semantics of the constructors and member functions defined below can be fully understood by reading the TypeWrapper concept definition. Since tuple is publicly derived from object, the public object interface applies to tuple instances as well.

namespace boost { namespace python
   class tuple : public object
      // tuple() -> an empty tuple

      // tuple(sequence) -> tuple initialized from sequence's items
      template <class T>
      explicit tuple(T const& sequence)
namespace boost { namespace python
  tuple make_tuple();

  template <class A0>
  tuple make_tuple(A0 const& a0);

  template <class A0, class A1>
  tuple make_tuple(A0 const& a0, A1 const& a1);
  template <class A0, class A1,...class An>
  tuple make_tuple(A0 const& a0, A1 const& a1,...An const& an);


Constructs a new tuple object composed of object(a0), object(a0),...object(an).

using namespace boost::python;
tuple head_and_tail(object sequence)
    return make_tuple(sequence[0],sequence[-1]);
