<?php // Simple for now $number = 12; // Any number for instance for($x=0; $number>$x; $x++) { echo "Number: $x<br>"; } ?>

The Low down:

for(

Start a 'for' function, which means, while the inside of the brackets () are happening you do what is inside the brackets {}

$x=0;

So $x is equal to 0 now, so we know where we start!

$number>$x;

While $number is bigger than $x (12 is bigger than 0) we do what follows

$x++)

We now add 1 onto the $x, so 0 is now 1, and so forth

{

echo "Number: $x<br>";

}

So while $number is bigger than $x (12 bigger than 0++) we echo the number! And once 12 is no longer bigger than 0, and $x = $number it stops the code and stops adding onto $x!

Alittle more complex:

<?php // Symbolising, begin the code // Let's start basic: $number = 12; // Any number for instance for($x=0; $number>$x; $x++) { echo "Number: $x<br>"; } else { echo "The allotted number was achieved!<br>Restart?<br><a href="$PHP_SELF">Yes</a>"; } // End the code now: ?>

else

{

Now that the $x = $number we use this command instead

echo "The allotted number was achieved!<br>Restart?<br><a href="$PHP_SELF">Yes</a>";

We echo that the number was achieved and if they wish to start again

}

That's it! We ended the new loop

I understand the tutorial is lacking in greatness, but I rushed it and well, I am assuming that most of you can pick this code up and adapt it to suit your needs.
