> Hi All,
> I have spent an embarrassingly large amount of time trying to solve what on
> its face seems like a simple problem.
> I have a list of intergers, and I want to assign the sum of the intergers in
> the list to a variable. There are only intergers in the list.
> The best I have been able to do so far is to write a function that adds
> list and list, then list and list , etc. Of course, this isn't
> what I want.
> I'd like to be able to sum a list of any size without having to type
for x in list:
total += x
