Adding array element in KSH


I would like to add the first 10 elements of an array. Here is how I am doing it now (only included first few add ops):


###Grab the array values out of a file###
TOTAL=`awk '/time/' /tmp/file.out | awk '{print $4}'`

set -A times $TOTAL
SUM=$((${times[0]} + times[1] + times[2]))

I would like an easier method of adding the elements...

$ cat add_array.ksh


set -A times 1 2 3 4 5 6

print "There are $TIMESCOUNT times elements"
print "times array = ${times[@]}"


print "SUM=$SUM"

exit 0

$ ./add_array.ksh
There are 6 times elements
times array = 1 2 3 4 5 6
