Iteration

.for(endValue, function)

Calls function for numbers from this up to endval, inclusive, stepping each time by 1.

Arguments:

endValue

function

a Function which is passed two arguments, the first which is an number from this to

(endval, and the second which is a number from zero to the number of iterations minus one.)

.forBy(endValue, stepValue, function)

Calls function for numbers from this up to endval stepping each time by step.

Arguments:

endValue

a Number.

stepValue

a Number.

function

a Function which is passed two arguments, the first which is an number from this to endval, and the second which is a number from zero to the number of iterations minus one.

Calls function for numbers from this up to endval stepping each time by a step specified by second.

Arguments:

second

a Number.

last

a Number.

function

a Function which is passed two arguments, the first which is an number from this to endval, and the second which is a number from zero to the number of iterations minus one.
