for is a Java keyword.

It starts a looping block.

The general syntax of a for, using Extended Backus-Naur Form, is

for-looping-statement ::= for condition-clause 
                                    single-statement | block-statement
 
condition-clause    ::= ( before-statement;  Boolean Expression ; after-statement )
single-statement    ::= Statement
block-statement     ::= { Statement [ Statement ] }

For example:

Computer code
for ( int i=0; i < maxLoopIter; i++ ) {
    System.println("Iter: " +i);
}
