'\GS(N=1,5,XN)' = 'X1+X2+X3+X4+X5' ?


How about this way?


<< -> N V 
<< 1 N FOR K
 'V' RCL

Store it in let's say XSUM, then:
'XSUM(5,X)' EVAL will produce what you want. It's limited to single-letter identifiers (by using TAIL HEAD, this can be improved).
Another improvement could be a start value for N, but you get the idea.

Quick footnote: For those trying this in newRPL, the TAIL HEAD combination needs to be removed, as the identifiers in symbolics are unquoted, then the code is good for arbitrary length identifiers.
