For[edit]

For(, PRGM:CTL:4, is command used to perform a specific block of code a set number of times.

Syntax: For[edit]

:For(variable,starting number,stopping number,increment)
://code
://code
:End
  • Variable is some numeric variable (Ex: X). Starting number is the variable will be set as in the beginning. Stopping number is the final number that the variable will be. Increment is the amount variable will go up or down after each run-through the loop; increment has a default of 1 and can be left off.

Ex: For[edit]

First Example[edit]

PROGRAM:TEMP
:For(X,0,3)
:Disp X
:End
prgmTEMP
           0
           1
           2
           3

Second Example[edit]

PROGRAM:TEMPA
:For(X,3,0,-1)
:Disp X
:End
prgmTEMPA
           3
           2
           1
           0

While[edit]

While, PGRM:CTL:5, is a command used to have a loop run as long as a specific condition is met.

Syntax: While[edit]

:0->x
:While x ≤ 3
://code
://code
:End

Ex: While[edit]

PROGRAM:TEMP
           0
           1
           2
           3
prgmTEMP{{{3}}}
