How do I remove an element from a list by index in Python?

I found the list.remove method, but say I want to remove the last element, how do I do this? It seems like the default remove searches the list, but I don't want any search to be performed.

Use del and specify the index of the element you want to delete:

>>> a = [0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9]
>>> del a[-1]
>>> a
[0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8]

Also supports slices:

>>> del a[2:4]
>>> a
[0, 1, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9]
