> Thanks ChrisA. If I do this "aList = enumerate(numList)", isn't it stored permanently in aList now?  I see your point to use it directly, but just in case I do need to hang onto it from one loop to another, then how is that done?   Anyway I think I'm ok and I got what I need for now.

The enumerator is. It doesn't become something different when you
assign it to something. Assume you don't need to hang onto it, until
such time as that changes. :)
