Loop Function

9 posts in this topic

Hi,

I write Loop for summinf 1 to 10 as follow:

Local $s,$i
For  $s = 0 to 10 step 1
  $i = $i+$S
Next
MsgBox(0,"ANS",$i)

Its works OK.

But when I define Function for above For...To Loop as below.I get wrong answer.

Pl just pinpoint my mistake.

 

Func sum($k,$s)
For $i = $k to $s
 $i = $k + $i
Next

 MsgBox(0,"",$i)
EndFunc

sum(0,10)

Because you reused the loop variable $i when you're doing the calculation, and not the variable $k which is what I'm assuming you were trying to do.


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

Thanks MVPs

I rearrange code like this:

Func sum($k,$s)
For $i = $k to $s
 $k = $i + $k
Next

 MsgBox(0,"",$k)
EndFunc

sum(0,10)

It Gives me correct result but when I use this function having value other than Zero then it gives wrong value.

i.e.

sum(2,5) gives 16 istead of 13.

Pl. give me some explanatory hints.

Regards

16 is the correct answer for that.

 

I'll break it down for you:

  1. $k = 2, $i = 2 (2+2=4)
  2. $k = 4, $i = 3 (4+3=7)
  3. $k = 7, $i = 4 (7+4=11)
  4. $k = 11, $i = 5 (11+5 =16)

$i starts at 2 and ends at 5, the results are correct.

You're summing the lower bound (2) twice. If indeed you want 2+3+4+5 you should get 14.

Thanks BrewManNH

Looking to that way code is correct.

I want to add sum(2,5)

i.e.  2+3+4+5 = 14 , it should be 14     ...not 16 or 13.

Whereas

sum(0,10) means

0+1+2+3+4+5+6+7+8+9+10 = 55   is correct.

Why this differ.

daya,

Is this what you aretrying to do?

func Sum($a, $b)
    local $tmp = 0
    for $1 = $a to $b
        $tmp += $1
    Next
    return $tmp
EndFunc

ConsoleWrite(Sum(2,5) & @LF)
ConsoleWrite(Sum(0,10) & @LF)

daya,

There are several Wiki tutorials (Google search).  After that the Help file is your best resource followed by this forum.

Good Luck,

kylomas
