;; This program asks the user how many numbers are to be added, and input the
;; user's response, which we will call n.  Now go into a loop which is iterated
;; n times, and in each iteration asks the user to enter a number.  The program
;; addes up n times and, finally output: The sum of the numbers enters is:
;; followed by the sum.  Program does not limite the input numbers to be less
;; than 10.  Program does not use any `int 21h` functions.
