Re: Summing formula

And, finally (?), in reponse to the question:  "how can I sum up the
grids I selected using the IDV's time selector?", the answer is:

1. change the formula to remove the second parameter
2. change the 'addEmUp()' method to something like this:

from visad.python.JPythonMethods import *
#
#This is the default  editable users jython library

import visad
from visad.python.JPythonMethods import *

def addEmUp(g):
 a = 0
 num = getDomainSizes(g)
 for k in range(num[0]):
   a = g[k] + a
 return

I realized after I hit "Send" that in this case the "getNthTimeGrid()"
is not really needed.  You can simply say:  "  a = g[k] + a ".
Perhaps the former is more illustrative as to what's going on,
however.
