Discussion on: Lessons From Advent of Code: Tuple Unpacking

Given the data is in a list, and sequential, it would be clearer to just directly unpack the list, rather than using an intermediate tuple:

opcode, loc1, loc2, loc3 = program[pos:pos+4]

I think that's readable. But if there isn't an existing relationship between the values, assigning across multiple lines is definitely better for the reasons Ben suggested.

That's clever, and I agree it's readable.
