Python for loop problem
Posted by Linux_Penguin [send private reply] at March 17, 2002, 08:47:40 PM Hi all, I haven't been in the halls of TPU in a long time. I am having trouble understanding some stuff with the for loops in Python... the book I am reading 'Learning Python' by O'Reilly press has a very confusing description of the for loop. Can anyone give a more uderstandable explanation?
Posted by PavalDaniel [send private reply] at March 18, 2002, 12:18:12 PM eg: for (k = 1; k <= 100; k++)
This for loop displays the natural numbers betwen 1 and 100.
What I did first is to initialize the variable "k" with 1.
Then I told the copiler to loop while k <= 100.
Each loop "k" is incremented (k = k + 1 or k++) so that "k" will be 100 sometime.
You can have more conditions and the incrementation part in the parantheses can miss.
Search the web for tutorials (there are a lot of useful ones!)
