annoying for loop error

annoying for loop error

Hi, I have this for loop and it is looping three times:

for ($i = 0, $i <= $noinsection, $i++)
  print $i;

even though $noinsection is 1.  $i prints as 1 each time.

Anyone got any ideas?

RE: annoying for loop error

You're using commas where you should be using semicolons. Try this instead:

for ($i = 0; $i <= $noinsection; $i++)
    print $i;


RE: annoying for loop error

Hi, Thanks for that.  I guess because I didn't get an internal server error I thought the error lay elsewhere.

One thing, how did the first code section only run three times then exit?

RE: annoying for loop error

I think perl uses your for-head as a list. The list ($i = 0, $i <= $noinsection, $i++) has three elements and is evaluated before entering the loop. $i is set to 0 and incremented at last resulting to 1. The loop iterates 3 times because the list has 3 elements. The current value of $i (1) is printed.
