Re: Summing the contents of a bag

Sorry if I've misunderstood the question but isn't this exactly what the
builtin function SUM does?
Given that your relation is contained in the alias 'in' and has this schema:
grunt> describe in;
in: {bagdata: {(int)}}

you could do this:
grunt> out = foreach in generate SUM(bagdata);
grunt> dump out;
