Do what?

Have a certain number of enumerated constants?

M0 = 0
M1 = 1
M2 = 2
...
MCOUNT = n


Create a list of symbols you can iterate through?

for i in [ M0, M1, M2, ... ]:
   ...


More information on what you want to do with this
can help us wean you from the C style of doing
things in the small, and get on with solving
the big problems. :-)
