web service to iterate over la list returned

I have built a web service using cherry.py and am having issues on what is most likley very simple.  I have a web service call that returns a list of strings and I simply need to print this back to the browser.

I have something like this:
for item in stat:
     return (item)

It will only return the first element and then stops. How to I iterate over all the list elements??

Return returns.  So the first time through the loop you return.

Not sure exactly how you want to represent your list to your client but one way might be:

   return ",".join(stat)


Another way (which returns the same as the above just in a much more roundabout way):

   retval = ""
   for item in stat:
      retval += stat + ","

   return retval[:-1]


Another way (which returns your list JSONified):

   import json
   return json.dumps(stat)

Sorry (typo):

   retval = ""
   for item in stat:
      retval += item + ","

   return retval[:-1]
