Mercker Aerospace Engineering and Engineering Mechanics The University of Texas at Austin ASE 201: Introduction to Computer Programming March 6 / 9, 2009 T. Mercker For Loops For Loops Examples Outline For Loops Syntax Special Statements Examples T. Mercker For Loops For Loops Examples Syntax Special Statements For Loops I You used while loops to find a condition (such as W air > W tot as in the balloon problem). This was useful because you did not know when to stop beforehand I Suppose you knew exactly which values you wanted to use beforehand I For example, you wanted to do the balloon problem for h starting at 0 going to 10000 with an increment of 200, and you did not care about stopping I This situation is conducive to using for loops instead of while loops I For loops will be especially useful when working with arrays T. Mercker For Loops For Loops Examples Syntax Special Statements I Syntax: for ( loop_variable = array ) Code to run while loop is active end I array can be any array that you want I At beginning of loop, loop_variable is set to the first value of the array I When end is reached, the for loop increments to the next value of the array I This continues until the final value of the array is reached and the loop is automatically complete I Unlike while loops, you DO NOT want to change the loop_variable because the for loop is automatically doing it T. Mercker For Loops For Loops Examples Syntax Special Statements I Examples of for loop statements: for h = 0:200:10000 % Increment from 0 to 10000 by 200 for k = 1:10 % This is like indexing for cost = [10, 50, 75, 120, 200] % Does not have to have increment values = [-3, 20, 16, -50, 27]; for j = values I Flow Diagram: T. Mercker For Loops For Loops Examples Syntax Special Statements I There are 2 special statements that you can place in a for loop ONLY 1. break I If a break is encountered, the for loop is terminated regardless of the value of the loop_variable I break allows the for loop to act like a while loop by having an if...
