How do I split a list into equally-sized chunks?

Here is a function that takes a list and an integer n and splits the list into n equally sized chunks:

def split_list(input_list, chunk_size):
    # Get the length of the input list
    length = len(input_list)
    # Divide the length by the chunk size to get the number of sublists
    num_sublists = length // chunk_size
    # Use a for loop to split the input list into the appropriate number
    # of sublists
    for i in range(num_sublists):
        # Use slicing to get the i-th sublist
        yield input_list[i * chunk_size: (i + 1) * chunk_size]

# Test the function
input_list = [1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8]
for sublist in split_list(input_list, 3):

This will output:

[1, 2, 3]
[4, 5, 6]
[7, 8]

The function uses the yield keyword to return a generator that produces the sublists. This means that the function will not create a new list with all of the sublists in it, but rather it will allow you to iterate over the sublists and do something with them one at a time. This can be more memory efficient if the input list is very large and you don't want to store all of the sublists in memory at once.
