[for():] Roll Option

* Introduced in version 1.3.b46

Executes a statement for a number of iterations based on a start and end value.

Usage

[for(var, start, end): body]
[for(var, start, end, stepsize): body]
[for(var, start, end, stepsize, separator): body]

Parameters
The var variable counts from start towards end during the loop, and the optional stepsize (default +1) is added to var at each iteration. Note that in the standard incrementing usage with a stepsize of 1, the body does not execute when var reaches end.
Note that stepsize must be integer and not 0. Floating values will be rounded down.
list_separator default value is ",". Some examples of other useful separators: nothing "", space " " and break "<br>".

Examples

[for(i,0,10): "i is now " + i]

Counts up from 0 to 9.

[for(i,10,0,-2): "i is now " + i]

Counts down even numbers from 10 to 0.

Version Changes

  • 1.3b54 - Changed the comparison operator when comparing the var to end when determining whether to continue executing a new iteration. In version 1.3b53 and earlier, on each iteration it compared if var was less than or equal to end. As of version 1.3b54, it is now comparing if var is less than end.
