Hi all, do you think this code:

$ more myscript.py
for line in open('data.txt'):
     result = sum(int(data) for data in line.split(';'))
     print(result)

that sums the elements of the lines of this file:

$ more data.txt
30;44;99;88
11;17;16;50
33;91;77;15
$ python3.3 myscript.py
261
94
216

is explicit enough? Do you prefer a clearer solution?
Thanks in advance, Marco
