a good exercise would be to write Perl code that efficiently calculates the sum of all of the digits in a range of integers.Assuming sum(n) is the sum of all digits from 1 to n, sum_range(m, n) is the sum of all digits from m to n, and m < n, isn't the following true? Or, did I totally get you wrong? /prakash
