Is that an array or a list? If you did nothing special it is a list.
What is value? Do all entries have the same value?

Let's say your array is a list. So the slice (your [0:4]) returns a
list with the first 4 items (index 0 upto 3) of the sliced list. So you
must find a way to convert your list to a string. You can use the
`join' method of strings.
>>> l = ['a', 'b', 'c']
If your array would really be an array you could use the `tostring'
method of arrays.
>>> import array
>>> arr = array.array('c', "I am an array of characters")
array('c', 'I am')
Please do *not* send copies of replies to me.
I read the list
