double loop

double loop

double loop

(OP)
Hi all,

Because of getting tired of editing ini files I wanted to write a small prog helping me.

I have to make a list of several instruments and runs. I tried:

set maxtape 10
set maxsite 10

for { set i 1 } { $i <= $maxsite } { incr i } {
    set j 0
    for { set j 1 } { $j <= $maxtape } { incr j } {
        puts " $i and $j "
    } # for j
} # for i

I also tried a combination of while and for - also not working

set i 0
while { $i <= $maxsite } {
#    puts "i is $i "
    for { set j 1 } { $j <= $maxtape } { incr j } {
        puts " $i and $j "
    } # for j
    set i [expr {$i + 1}]
}


I always get the following error:

Error in startup script: wrong # args: should be "for start test next command"

What am I doing wrong? Is it simply not possible to have a double loop?
If not how would I solve it? Thanks in advance.

RE: double loop

Hi

In Tcl the comments can be placed only at the beginning of commands. So you have to terminate the for before the #, either by placing a new-line or a semicolon ( ; ) between them :

CODE --> Tcl

for { set i 1 } { $i <= $maxsite } { incr i } {
    set j 0
    for { set j 1 } { $j <= $maxtape } { incr j } {
        puts " $i and $j "
    }; # for j
}; # for i
