Next: HCos Up: COD Command Summary Previous: EXP

COD> : TMP 4 1 FOR I . LOOP ; COD> TMP 1.0 2.0 3.0 4.0Warning to people who know Forth: The COD FOR statement is similar to the Forth DO statement; however, there is an important difference concerning the two numbers that precede the FOR. In COD, these represent the upper and lower index values respectfully; in Forth, the first number is one greater than the upper index value.
