Accessing variable assigned in a function [duplicate]

  function, python, variables

Here is a bare-bones example of my code:

def function():
  var_a = 1
  var_b = 2
  var_c = 3
  return var_a, var_b, var_c


(Apologies for wonky formatting). Basically, the function takes in no arguments and its single job is variable assignment. I need to be able to call on the function for quick assignment and then be able to use those variables in the rest of my code. The problem is that I can’t get those variables out of the function.

So if I use the above code and put a print(var_a) line after, then it will tell me that var_a is not defined. If I say values = function() , print (values) then I will get only the values printed in a list, but I won’t be able to access them in the way I want. Is there an easy way to fix this?
