# tqdm's "total" parameter bug

Due to something in the Sage 8.7 kernel (currently running in CoCalc), the tqdm progress bar crashes when I try to specify its total parameter. According to the documentation, my syntax should be correct. Specifically,

```
from tqdm import tqdm_notebook as tqdm
for i in tqdm(range(50),total=75):
print(i)
```

yields

```

```

Especially since a similar implementation of tqdm does work in a python 3 sheet, this feels like a minor bug to me. Or am I making some silly mistake?

-- edit: replaced example with a more straightforward one

Try with "10" instead of str(10)

Thanks for your answer, but the "10" isn't the problem; graphs.nauty_geng takes a string argument and returns an Iterable. The issue is related to the other number, which somehow becomes a string in tqdm.

I have replaced my example in response to your suggestion, to make the question more clear.
