[Tutor] Write array to Status text

I don't know if this made it to the list or not. Here is the code that I
tried. It doesn't work correctly. The new values don't get appended to
the array.

errorarray=array('i', [0]*10)

<snip part where returnedval gets set to hexadecimal value.>

if count == 1:

print errorarray[0:4]

Can you see what I am doing wrong here?

Okay, it looks like an array but when I do this I get an error saying

'list' object has no attribute 'tostring'

So I guess it is really a list. It looks so much like an array in C. I'm
afraid that I don't see the reason for both existing. Is there a place
where I can find out more about the differences? I'm sure that I could
use a real array for what I am doing if I only understood the difference
between arrays and lists.
