I'm using pyshp for creating a shapefile. I need to populate tens of fields with values using the record() method of shapefile.Writer. I have those values as a list, but have no idea how to send it to the method without enumerating them as w.record(values[0], values[1], etc.).

Found an answer after mailing to the author of this library: just use w.record(*attrs).
