Sometimes dealing with data can be a real struggle.
Sometimes it's delivered in a undesirable format that you have no control over. Sometimes things can get ugly.
But you're a PyBites Ninja! You persevere, you overcome any obstacle!
The networking team is writing a Python script to help keep track of inventory and they need some assistance.
They give you a list of data that looks something like this:data = [['ip', ['"172.16.0.0"'], 'mask', ['12'], 'type', ['ip_mask']]
And need to extract the IP address information into a list of 2-tuples(ip, mask) like this:[('172.16.0.0', '12'), ...]
Here's another example of a deeply nested list:[['TEST', ['parent', , 'uuid', ['"khk-yyas4h-323223-wewe-343er-3434-www"'],
'display_name', ['"services"'], 'IPV4', [[['ip', ['"126.96.36.199"'], 'mask', ['20'],
'type', ['ip_mask']], ['ip', ['"188.8.131.52"'], 'mask', ['32'], 'type', ['ip_mask']
And the expected output:[('184.108.40.206', '20'), ('220.127.116.11', '32')]
The IP information is nested inside lists-of-lists-of-lists-of... It's really really badly structured data that has no business being in this format.
Can you help get requested information out of "this heap of trash"?
