problem with arrays

problem with arrays

problem with arrays


I'm new with tcl programming language, and I need your help:
I want to create an array with some conditions. I have a variable len that says me how long the arry must be, and on the other hand, I have in another variable bete the number that I must have in all positions in the array. For example:

%set len 5
%set bete 123

So this is what i want to achieve in an array:
array = 123 123 123 123 123

I don't know if it is clear...

Thanks in advance

looking forward to your help

RE: problem with arrays

Short Example


set len 5
set bete 123

puts "Using Array:"
# create array
for {set i 1} {$i <= $len} {incr i} {
  set arr($i) $bete

# print array
for {set i 1} {$i <= $len} {incr i} {
  puts "arr($i) = $arr($i)"

puts "\nUsing List:"
# create list
set lst {}
for {set i 1} {$i <= $len} {incr i} {
  lappend lst $bete

# print list
puts "\$lst = \[ $lst \]"

set i 1
foreach el $lst {
  puts "lst($i) = $el"
  incr i


Using Array:
arr(1) = 123
arr(2) = 123
arr(3) = 123
arr(4) = 123
arr(5) = 123

Using List:
$lst = [ 123 123 123 123 123 ]
lst(1) = 123
lst(2) = 123
lst(3) = 123
lst(4) = 123
lst(5) = 123
