For next question

If I'm in a for...next loop that goes up to 50 Is it possible to make it do something specific every 5th loop without doing if "$i=x or" for all the 5th integers?

Champak,

Use the Mod function as a filter: ;)

For $i = 1 To 50
    If Mod($i, 5) = 0 Then ConsoleWrite($i & @CRLF)
Next
That will fire on 5, 10, 15, etc. :)

That only fires 'every 5th loop' if you start at 1  (unless of course you account for the starting number and subtract/add that to $i in the mod function, which still seems the long way around).

How is evaluating the variable then doing divsion, a better solution then just counting to 5 yourself inside the loop (or using step)?  Not being coy, just really want to know why this method is being sought in case it is useful.
