How do I let a function accept a variable number of lists:

I'm trying out the (very nice) stats module from

http://www.*-*-*.com/

I'm using Win NT4 and Python 2.0:

----------------------------------------

import pstat, stats

def DoAnova():

''' A command line interface to calculate one-way ANOVA. '''

numPoints = input('How many data points in each group? ')

numGroups = input('How many groups are there (2 minimum)? ')

li = [0]

for i in range(numGroups - 1):

li.append(0)

for i in range(numGroups):

li[i] = [0]*numPoints

for group in range(numGroups):

for point in range(numPoints):

li[group][point] = input('Enter a data point: ')

print li

x = stats.F_oneway(li[0], li[1])

print x

DoAnova()

---------------------------------------

Problem:

The above works properly for 2 lists ONLY. e.g.: [1,2], [3,4]

It returns:

[[1, 2], [3, 4]]

(8.0, 0.10557280898846583)

The problem is this line:

x = stats.F_oneway(li[0], li[1])

I've just set it to accept the first two lists.

The docstring for lF_oneway includes:

"Usage: F_oneway(*lists) where *lists is any number of lists, one

per treatment group"

Question:

How do I automatically pass the correct number of lists to

stats.F_oneway()?

If I could turn the list of lists into a series of lists i.e:

li = [[1, 2], [3, 4], [5,6]] --> li = [1,2], [3,4], [5,6]]

then I could presumably just pass li.

Thanks in advance.
