xonsh.lib.itertools.as_iterable(iterable_or_scalar)[source]

Although string types are iterable in Python, we are treating them as not iterable in this method. Thus, as_iterable(string) returns (string, ) Examples ——— >>> as_iterable(1) (1,) >>> as_iterable([1, 2, 3]) [1, 2, 3] >>> as_iterable(“my string”) (“my string”, )
