Python Comma Separated

·
Separate a list of string in english-language list fashion, just like the Ruby snippet listed earlier.


def textList(listtext, sep1=', ', sep2=', and '):
        return (len(listtext) > 1 
        and ("%s%s%s" % (sep1.join(listtext[:-1]), sep2, listtext[-1])) 
        or listtext[0])


['one'] -> "one"
['one', 'two', 'three'] -> "one, two, and three"
