The FOR loop construct in Ada does not give the programmer the ability to directly modify the loop control variable during the execution of the loop. Instead, a valid range must always be provided before entering a loop. Because exact adherence to the task is impossible, we have three versions to approximate a solution. Looper_1 goes through a range of values which are even. Looper_2 multiples each value by two. Looper_3 most closely adheres to the requirements of this task, and achieves this by using a second range for the indices.

```with Loopers;
use Loopers;

procedure For_Main is
begin
Looper_1;
Looper_2;
Looper_3;
end For_Main;

package Loopers is
procedure Looper_1;
procedure Looper_2;
procedure Looper_3;
end Loopers;

package body Loopers is
procedure Looper_1 is
Values : array(1..5) of Integer := (2,4,6,8,10);
begin
for I in Values'Range loop
Put(Values(I),0);
if I = Values'Last then
Put_Line(".");
else
Put(",");
end if;
end loop;
end Looper_1;

procedure Looper_2 is
E : Integer := 5;
begin
for I in 1..E loop
Put(I*2,0);
if I = E then
Put_Line(".");
else
Put(",");
end if;
end loop;
end Looper_2;

procedure Looper_3 is
Values : array(1..10) of Integer := (1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10);
Indices : array(1..5) of Integer := (2,4,6,8,10);
begin
for I in Indices'Range loop
Put(Values(Indices(I)),0);
if I = Indices'Last then
Put_Line(".");
else
Put(",");
end if;
end loop;
end Looper_3;

end Loopers;

## Agena

Tested with Agena 2.9.5 Win32

```for i from 2 to 8 by 2 do
print( i )
od```

## Aime

```integer i;

i = 0;
while (i < 10) {
o_winteger(2, i);
i += 2;
}

o_newline();```

## ALGOL 60

```for i:=5 step 5 until 25 do
OUTINTEGER(i)
```

## ALGOL 68

The ALGOL 68 "universal" for/while loop:

``` [ for index ] [ from first ] [ by increment ] [ to last ] [ while condition ] do statements od
The minimum form of a "loop clause" is thus: do statements od # an infinite loop #
```

The formal specification of ALGOL 68 states:

```for i from u1 by u2 to u3 while condition do action od
```

"is thus equivalent to the following void-closed-clause:"

```begin int f:= u1, int b = u2, t = u3;
step2:
if (b > 0 ∧ f ≤ t) ∨ (b < 0 ∧ f ≥ t) ∨ b = 0
then int i = f;
if condition
then action; f +:= b; go to step2
fi
fi
end
```

Note: Highlighting is as per the formal specification, c.f. Category:ALGOL 68#Example of different program representations.

There are several unusual aspects of the construct:

• only the 'do ~ od' portion was compulsory, in which case the loop will iterate indefinitely.
• thus the clause 'to 100 do ~ od', will iterate only 100 times.
• the while "syntactic element" allowed a programmer to break from a for loop early. eg
```int sum sq:=0;
for i while
sum sq ≠ 70 × 70
do
sum sq +:= i ↑ 2
od
```

Subsequent "extensions" to the standard Algol68 allowed the to syntactic element to be replaced with upto and downto to achieve a small optimisation. The same compilers also incorporated:

• until(C) - for late loop termination.
• foreach(S) - for working on arrays in parallel.

## ALGOL W

```begin
for i := 3 step 2 until 9 do write( i )
end.```

## ALGOL-M

```BEGIN
INTEGER I;
FOR I := 1 STEP 3 UNTIL 19 DO
WRITE( I );
END```

## AppleScript

```repeat with i from 2 to 10 by 2
log i
end repeat
```

## AutoHotkey

```SetBatchLines, -1

```

## Avail

`For each i from 0 to 100 by 7 do [Print: “i” ++ " is a multiple of 7!\n";];`

Note the `0 to 100 by 7` segment isn't a fixed part of the loop syntax, but a call to the `_to_by_` method, which returns a tuple of integers in a range separated by a particular step size.

## AWK

```BEGIN {
for (i= 2; i <= 8; i = i + 2) {
print i
}
print "Ain't never too late!"
}
```

## Axe

Axe does not support a step size other than 1. However, one can modify the increment variable inside the loop to accomplish the same task.

This example increments by 2:

```For(I,0,10)
Disp I▶Dec,i
I++
End```

### smart BASIC

Notice how the ampersand (&) is used to concatenate the variable with the text instead of a semicolon.

```FOR n = 2 TO 8 STEP 2
PRINT n & "..";
NEXT n
PRINT "who do we appreciate?"
END
```

### TI-83 BASIC

Prints numbers from 0 to 100 stepping by 5.

```:For(I,0,100,5
:Disp I
:End```

### TI-89 BASIC

```Local i
For i, 0, 100, 5
Disp i
EndFor```

### True BASIC

```FOR i = 1 TO 21 STEP 2
PRINT i; " ";
NEXT i
END
```
Output:
```1 3 5 7 9 11 13 15 17 19 21
```

Since TrueBasic does not distinguish between integer or real values, we can increment using decimal values as well

```FOR i = 1 TO 5 STEP .5
PRINT i
NEXT i
END
```
Output:
```1
1.5
2
2.5
3
3.5
4
4.5
5
```

### Visual Basic

Works with: Visual Basic version VB6 Standard
```Sub MyLoop()
For i = 2 To 8 Step 2
Debug.Print i;
Next i
Debug.Print
End Sub
```
Output:
``` 2  4  6  8
```

### Visual Basic .NET

Works with: Visual Basic .NET version .NET Core 3.0
```Imports System.Console

End Sub
End Module
```
Output:
```2, 4, 6, 8, who do we appreciate?
```
Works with: Visual Basic .NET version 2011
```Public Class FormPG
Dim i As Integer, buffer As String

Debug.Print(buffer)
End Sub
End Class
```

PRINT FORMAT\$("###", i%)
NEXT i%
END FUNCTION
END PROGRAM
```

### Yabasic

```

## Clojure

The first example here is following the literal specification, but is not idiomatic Clojure code. The second example achieves the same effect without explicit looping, and would (I think) be viewed as better code by the Clojure community.

```(loop [i 0]
(println i)
(when (< i 10)
(recur (+ 2 i))))

(doseq [i (range 0 12 2)]
(println i))
```

## CLU

## Delphi

Delphi's For loop doesn't support a step value. It would have to be simulated using something like a While loop.

```program LoopWithStep;

{\$APPTYPE CONSOLE}

var
i: Integer;
begin
i:=2;
while i <= 8 do begin
WriteLn(i);
Inc(i, 2);
end;
end.
```
Output:
```2
4
6
8```

## Dragon

```for(i = 2, i <= 8,i += 2){
show ", " + i
}
showln "who do we appreciate?"```

## DWScript

```var i : Integer;

for i := 2 to 8 step 2 do
PrintLn(i);
```
Output:
```2
4
6
8```

## Dyalect

```//Prints odd numbers from 1 to 10
for i in 1^2..10 {
print(i)
}```

## E

There is no step in the standard numeric range object (a..b and a..!b) in E, which is typically used for numeric iteration. An ordinary while loop can of course be used:

```var i := 2
while (i <= 8) {
print(`\$i, `)
i += 2
}
println("who do we appreciate?")```

A programmer frequently in need of iteration with an arbitrary step should define an appropriate range object:

```def stepRange(low, high, step) {
def range {
to iterate(f) {
var i := low
while (i <= high) {
f(null, i)
i += step
}
}
}
return range
}

for i in stepRange(2, 9, 2) {
print(`\$i, `)
}
println("who do we appreciate?")```

The least efficient, but perhaps convenient, solution is to iterate over successive integers and discard undesired ones:

```for i ? (i %% 2 <=> 0) in 2..8 {
print(`\$i, `)
}
println("who do we appreciate?")```

## EasyLang

```# Prints even numbers from 0 to 100
for i = 0 step 2 to 100
print i
.
# Decimal step value
for i = 0 step 1.23 to 100
print i
.```

## EchoLisp

Steps may be integers, float, rationals.

```(for ((i (in-range 0 15 2))) (write i))
0 2 4 6 8 10 12 14

(for ((q (in-range 0 15 14/8))) (write q))
0 7/4 7/2 21/4 7 35/4 21/2 49/4 14

(for ((x (in-range 0 15 PI))) (write x))

## Erlang

```%% Implemented by Arjun Sunel
%% for_loop/4 by Bengt Kleberg.
-module(loop_step).
-export([main/0, for_loop/1, for_loop/4]).

% This Erlang code for "For Loop" is equivalent to: " for (i=start;  i<end ; i=i+2){ printf("* ");} " in C language.

main() ->
for_loop(1).

for_loop( N ) ->
for_loop( N, 4, 2, fun() -> io:fwrite("* ") end ).

for_loop( I, End, Step, Do ) when N < End ->
Do(),
for_loop( I+Step, End, Step, Do );
for_loop( _I, _End, _Step, _Do ) -> ok.

```

## Euphoria

```for i = 1 to 10 by 2 do
? i
end for```

As a note, `? something` is shorthand for:

```print(1, something)
puts(1, "\n")```

`print()` differs from `puts()` in that `print()` will print out the actual `sequence` it is given. If it is given an `integer`, or an `atom` (Any number that is not an `integer`), it will print those out as-is.

## F#

```for i in 2..2..8 do
printf "%d, " i
printfn "done"

## Fermat

`for i = 1 to 100 by 13 do !i;!' '; od`
Output:

## FOCAL

If a FOR statement has three parameters, they are (in order) the start, the step, and the end; if only two parameters are supplied, they are taken to be the start and the end. The step is then set to 1.

`FOR I = 1,3,10; TYPE I, !`

## Forth

```: test

## Fortran

Works with: Fortran version 90 and later
```do i = 1,10,2
print *, i
end do
```
Works with: Fortran version 77 and later
```      PROGRAM STEPFOR

END
```

## Frink

```for a = 1 to 100 step 5
println[a]```

All values may have units of measure, in which case a specified step is required:

```for a = 1 km to 3 km step 1 meter
println[a]```

## GAP

1. Use a range [a, b .. c], where the step is b-a (b is the value following a), and c-a must be a multiple of the step.
```for i in [1, 3 .. 11] do
Print(i, "\n");
od;

9
11
```

## GML

```for(i = 0; i < 10; i += 2)
show_message(string(i))```

## Go

This prints all odd digits:

```for i := 1; i < 10; i += 2 {
fmt.Printf("%d\n", i)
}
```

## Groovy

"for" loop:

```for(i in (2..9).step(2)) {
print "\${i} "
}
println "Who do we appreciate?"
```

"each() method: Though technically not a loop, most Groovy programmers would use the slightly more terse "each()" method on the collection itself, instead of a "for" loop.

```(2..9).step(2).each {
print "\${it} "
}
println "Who do we appreciate?"
```
Output:
`2 4 6 8 Who do we appreciate?`

Go Team!

```import Control.Monad (forM_)
main = do forM_ [2,4..8] (\x -> putStr (show x ++ ", "))
putStrLn "who do we appreciate?"
```

## Haxe

While Haxe's for-loop does not allow you to directly specify the step size, it is easy to create an iterator that allows you to do that.

```class Step {
var end:Int;
var step:Int;
var index:Int;

public inline function new(start:Int, end:Int, step:Int) {
this.index = start;
this.end = end;
this.step = step;
}

public inline function hasNext() return step > 0 ? end >= index : index >= end;
public inline function next() return (index += step) - step;
}

class Main {
static function main() {
for (i in new Step(2, 8, 2)) {
Sys.print('\$i ');
}
Sys.println('WHOM do we appreciate? GRAMMAR! GRAMMAR! GRAMMAR!');
}
}
```
Output:
`2 4 6 8 WHOM do we appreciate? GRAMMAR! GRAMMAR! GRAMMAR!`

## Icon and Unicon

Icon and Unicon accomplish loop stepping through the use of a generator, the ternary operator to-by, and the every clause which forces a generator to consume all of its results. Because to-by is an operator it has precedence (just higher than assignments) and associativity (left) and can be combined with other operators.

```   every 1 to 10 by 2                       # the simplest case that satisfies the task, step by 2

every 1 to 10                            # no to, step is by 1 by default
every EXPR1 to EXPR2 by EXPR3 do EXPR4   # general case - EXPRn can be complete expressions including other generators such as to-by, every's do is optional
steps := [2,3,5,7]                       # a list
every i := 1 to 100 by !steps            # . more complex, several passes with each step in the list steps, also we might want to know what value we are at
every L[1 to 100 by 2]                   # as a list index
every i := 1 to 100 by (k := !steps)     # . need () otherwise := generates an error
every 1 to 5 to 10                       # simple case of combined to-by - 1,..,10, 2,..10, ..., 5,..,10
every 1 to 15 by 2 to 5                  # combined to-by
every (1 to 15 by 2) to 5                # . made explicit

every writes( (TO_BY_EXPR) | "\n", " " ) # if you want to see how any of these work
```

The ability to combine to-by arbitrarily is quite powerful. Yet it can lead to unexpected results. In cases of combined to-by operators the left associativity seems natural where the by is omitted. In cases where the by is used it might seem more natural to be right associative. If in doubt parenthesize.

## Io

```for(i,2,8,2,
write(i,", ")
)
write("who do we appreciate?")
```

## J

```    ' who do we appreciate?' ,~ ":  2 * >: i.4
2 4 6 8 who do we appreciate?
```

Note that an expression of the form `(start, step) (p. i.) count` will generate the specified numbers (`p.` is J's polynomial primitive, `i.` is J's index generator). So, to generate the above sequence of integers we could have used:

```   0 2 (p. i.) 5
0 2 4 6 8
```

Or, using an "actual" for loop:

```   3 :0''
r=.\$0
for_n. 2 * >: i.4 do.
r=.r,n
end.
' who do we appreciate?' ,~ ":n
)
2 4 6 8 who do we appreciate?
```

That said, note also that J's steps verb lets us specify how many steps to take:

```   i:8
_8 _7 _6 _5 _4 _3 _2 _1 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8
i:8j8
_8 _6 _4 _2 0 2 4 6 8
```

Or, if we prefer, we could borrow the definition of `thru` from the Downward for task and then filter for the desired values:

```   thru=: <./ + i.@(+*)@-~
```

Example use:

```   (#~ 0 = 2&|) 1 thru 20
2 4 6 8 10 12 14 16 18 20
(#~ 0 = 3&|) 1 thru 20
3 6 9 12 15 18
(#~ 1 = 3&|) 1 thru 20
1 4 7 10 13 16 19
```

And, of course, like filtering in any language, this approach supports non-constant step sizes, either by applying a function to each argument individually:

```   (#~ 1&p:) 1 thru 20
2 3 5 7 11 13 17 19
```

Or, by inserting a combining function between each value:

```   (-&{.,])/ 1 thru 20
_10 11 _9 12 _8 13 _7 14 _6 15 _5 16 _4 17 _3 18 _2 19 _1 20
```

Other structural approaches can also be viable...

## Java

```for(int i = 2; i <= 8;i += 2){
System.out.print(i + ", ");
}
System.out.println("who do we appreciate?");
```

## JavaScript

```var output = '',
i;
for (i = 2; i <= 8; i += 2) {
output += i + ', ';
}
output += 'who do we appreciate?';
document.write(output);
```

In a functional idiom of JavaScript, however, we will only be able to compose this computation within the superordinate expressions of our program if it has the the form of an expression returning a value, rather than that of a statement which fires off side-effects but returns no value.

Following the example of languages like Haskell and J on this page, we can begin by generating the stepped series as an expression. In functional JavaScript we will typically replace a state-changing loop with a non-mutating map or fold, writing, for example, something like:

```// range(iMax)
// range(iMin, iMax)
// range(iMin, iMax, dI)
function range() {
var lngArgs = arguments.length,
lngMore = lngArgs - 1;

iMin = lngMore ? arguments[0] : 1;
iMax = arguments[lngMore ? 1 : 0];
dI = lngMore > 1 ? arguments[2] : 1;

return lngArgs ? Array.apply(null, Array(
Math.floor((iMax - iMin) / dI) + 1
)).map(function (_, i) {
return iMin + (dI * i);
}) : [];
}

console.log(
range(2, 8, 2).join(', ') + ', who do we appreciate ?'
);
```

Output:

`2, 4, 6, 8, who do we appreciate ?`

## jq

To generate the stream: 2,4,6,8:
```# If your version of jq does not have range/3, use this:
def range(m;n;step): range(0; ((n-m)/step) ) | m + (. * step);

range(2;9;2)```

Example:

```reduce range(2;9;2) as \$i
(""; . + "\(\$i), ") +
"whom do we appreciate?"```

## Julia

```for i in 2:2:8
print(i, ", ")
end
println("whom do we appreciate?")
```

## Kotlin

```// version 1.0.6

fun main(args: Array<String>) {
for (i in 1 .. 21 step 2) print("\$i ")
}
```
Output:
```1 3 5 7 9 11 13 15 17 19 21
```

## Lingo

Lingo loops don't support a "step" parameter, so it has to be implemented manually:

```step = 3
repeat with i = 0 to 10
put i
i = i + (step-1)
end repeat```
Output:
```-- 0
-- 3
-- 6
-- 9

## M2000 Interpreter

### A for loop

Str\$(i) always return decimal separator as "." format\$() use same as Locale number specify. So here we use "," from Locale 1036. Str\$() place a space before number if it is positive. We can use str\$(i, "") to trim lead space. Here we use a space in format\$ before number (and for negative numbers)

For this task we use single float numbers, and we make the loop one time from lower to higher value, and one time form higher to lower value.

```Module LoopFor {
Locale 1036
Document doc\$
\\ define i as a single
def single i
for i=1 to 21 step 5/3
Print i
doc\$=format\$(" {0}", i)
next i
doc\$={
}
\\ make i as a single
for i=21 to 1 step 5/3
Print i
doc\$=format\$(" {0}", i)
next i
clipboard doc\$
report doc\$
}
LoopFor```
Output:
``` 1 2,66667 4,33333 6 7,66667 9,33333 11 12,66667 14,33333 16 17,66667 19,33333 21

```

### Iterator step 2

```a=("A", "B", "C", "D", "E", "F", "Z")
k=Each(a)
While k {
Print Array\$(k),
k=Each(a, k^+2)   ' set start again

k=Each(b)
While k {
Print Eval\$(k), ' return keys as values, because no value exist yet for each key.
k=Each(b, k^+2)

Print```
Output:
```A   C   E   Z

## Oz

```for I in 2..8;2 do
{System.show I}

## Panda

Panda doesn't natively have a number generator with steps, so let's add it.

```fun for(from,to,step) type integer,integer,integer->integer
t=to.minus(from).divide(step)
0..t.times(step).plus(from)
/test it for(1 6 2) -> 1 3 5

for(1 3 5)```

## PARI/GP

`forstep(n=1,10,2,print(n))`

The `forstep` construct is actually more powerful. For example, to print numbers with last digit relatively prime to 10:

`forstep(n=1,100,[2,4,2,2],print(n))`

See Delphi

## Perl

```for(\$i=2; \$i <= 8; \$i += 2) {
print "\$i, ";
}
print "who do we appreciate?\n";
```

## Phix

```for i=2 to 8 by 2 do
printf(1,"%d, ",i)
end for
printf(1,"who do we appreciate?\n")
```

## Phixmonti

```/# Rosetta Code problem: https://rosettacode.org/wiki/Loops/For_with_a_specified_step

( 2 8 2 ) for print ", " print endfor
"who do we appreciate?" print```
Output:
```2, 4, 6, 8, who do we appreciate?
=== Press any key to exit ===```

## PHP

```<?php
foreach (range(2, 8, 2) as \$i)
echo "\$i, ";
echo "who do we appreciate?\n";

`2, 4, 6, 8, who do we appreciate?`

## PicoLisp

```(for (N 1 (> 10 N) (+ N 2))

## Pike

```int main() {

write(i + "\n");
}
}
```

## PILOT

One of the advantages of needing to create loops manually by using conditional jumps is that a step of any integer is just as easy as a step of one.

```R  : Prints the odd numbers less than 10.
C  :i = 1
*Loop
T  :#i
C  :i = i + 2
J ( i < 10 )  :*Loop
END:```

## PL/I

```declare (n, i) fixed binary;

get list (n);
do i = 1 to n by 4;
put skip list (i);
end;```

## Plain English

Plain English has only one type of loop: an infinite loop that can be given a conditional break or exit. So there is nothing particularly special about this.

```To run:
Start up.
Put 0 into a number.
Loop.
If the number is greater than 50, break.
Convert the number to a string.
Write the string to the console.
Repeat.
Wait for the escape key.
Shut down.```

## PowerShell

```for (\$i = 0; \$i -lt 10; \$i += 2) {
\$i
}
```

## Prolog

If you need a stepping iterator, write one:

```for(Lo,Hi,Step,Lo)  :- Step>0, Lo=<Hi.
for(Lo,Hi,Step,Val) :- Step>0, plus(Lo,Step,V), V=<Hi, !, for(V,Hi,Step,Val).

example :-
for(0,10,2,Val), write(Val), write(' '), fail.
example.
```
```?- example.
0 2 4 6 8 10
true.```

Adding the following two rules lets you go backwards too:

```for(Hi,Lo,Step,Hi)  :- Step<0, Lo=<Hi.
for(Hi,Lo,Step,Val) :- Step<0, plus(Hi,Step,V), Lo=<V, !, for(V,Lo,Step,Val).
```

## Python

Works with: Python version 2.x
```for i in xrange(2, 9, 2):
print "%d," % i,
print "who do we appreciate?"
```
Works with: Python version 3.x
```for i in range(2, 9, 2):
print("%d, " % i, end="")
print("who do we appreciate?")
```
Output:
`2, 4, 6, 8, who do we appreciate?`

## Quackery

The step size is specified within the loop, giving many possibilities.

```20 times [ i^ echo sp
2 step ]
cr
1024 times [ i^ 1+ echo sp
i^ 1+ step ]
cr
1 56 times [ i^ echo sp
i^ swap step ]
cr```
Output:
```0 2 4 6 8 10 12 14 16 18
1 2 4 8 16 32 64 128 256 512 1024
0 1 1 2 3 5 8 13 21 34 55
```

## R

```for(a in seq(2,8,2)) {
cat(a, ", ")
}
cat("who do we appreciate?\n")
```

Here the loop may be done implicitly by first concatenating the string and then printing:

```cat(paste(c(seq(2, 8, by=2), "who do we appreciate?\n"), collapse=", "))
```

## Racket

```#lang racket

(for ([i (in-range 2 9 2)])
(printf "~a, " i))
(printf "who do we appreciate?~n")
```

## Raku

(formerly Perl 6)

Works with: Rakudo version 2010.07

Depending on how you define your terms, this task is either trivial or impossible in Raku. `for` in Raku doesn't have a step value, it's an iteration operator. It iterates through any iterable object passed to it and sets the topic variable to each iterated value in turn. If you close one eye and squint, I guess you could say it has a step value of 1 (or more accurately, Next) and that isn't really changeable. Whatever iterable you pass to it though can have pretty much any value in pretty much any order you desire, so effectively the "step" value is completely unconstrained.

Examples of iterables (not exhaustive):

• Things that do a positional role:
• Array
• List
• Range
• Sequence
• Things that do an associative role:
• Bag
• BagHash
• Hash
• Map
• Mix
• MixHash
• QuantHash
• Set
• SetHash

Probably the most straightforward way to do this is with a sequence. With at least two values on the left-hand side, the sequence operator (`...`) can infer an arithmetic series. (With at least three values, it can infer a geometric sequence, too.)

```for 2, 4 ... 8 {
print "\$_, ";
}

say 'whom do we appreciate?';
```

But there is nothing constraining the sequence to a constant step. Here's one with a random step.

```.say for rand, *+rand-.5 ... *.abs>2
```
Sample output:
```0.1594860240843563
-0.11336537297314198
-0.04195945218519992
-0.024844489074366427
-0.20616093727620433
-0.17589258387167517
-0.40547336592612593
0.04561929494516015
0.4886003890463373
0.7843094215547495
0.6413619589945883
1.0694380727281951
1.472290164849169
1.8310404939418325
2.326272380988639
```

For that matter, the iterated object doesn't need to contain numbers.

```.say for <17/32 π banana 👀 :d(7) 🦋>;
```

## Raven

List of numbers:

```[ 2 4 6 8 ] each "%d, " print
"who do we appreciate?\n" print```

Range:

```2 10 2 range each "%d, " print
"who do we appreciate?\n" print```
Output:
```2, 4, 6, 8, who do we appreciate?
```

## REBOL

```for i 2 8 2 [
prin rejoin [i ", "]]
print "who do we appreciate?"
```
Output:
`2, 4, 6, 8, who do we appreciate?`

## REXX

### version 1

```  do x=1  to 10  by 1.5
say x
end
```
Output:
```1
2.5
4.0
5.5
7.0
8.5
10.0
```

### version 2

```  do thing=1  by  3/2  to 10
say  thing
end
```

output is the same as above.

### version 3

```Do v=1  by  3/2  While v**2<30
Say  v
End
Say '('v'**2) is greater than 30 (30.25)'
```
Output:
```1
2.5
4.0
(5.5**2) is greater than 30 (30.25)```

## Ring

we use step keyword to define step length in this example we print Even numbers between 0 and 10

`for i = 0 to 10 step 2 see i + nl next`
Output:
```2
4
6
8
10
```

we can use step with double values as well:

`for i = 0 to 10 step 0.5 see i + nl next`
Output:
```0
0.50
1
1.50
2
2.50
3
3.50
4
4.50
5
5.50
6
6.50
7
7.50
8
8.50
9
9.50
10
```

## Ruby

```2.step(8,2) {|n| print "#{n}, "}
puts "who do we appreciate?"
```

or:

```(2..8).step(2) {|n| print "#{n}, "}
puts "who do we appreciate?"
```

or:

```for n in (2..8).step(2)
print "#{n}, "
end
puts "who do we appreciate?"
```

or:

```for n in 2.step(by: 2, to: 8)
print "#{n}, "
end
puts "who do we appreciate?"
```
Output:
```2, 4, 6, 8, who do we appreciate?
```

## Rust

For Rust 1.28 and later:

```fn main() {
for i in (2..=8).step_by(2) {
print!("{}", i);
}
println!("who do we appreciate?!");
}
```

An alternative which also works in earlier versions of Rust:

```fn main() {
let mut i = 2;
while i <= 8 {
print!("{}, ", i);
i += 2;
}
println!("who do we appreciate?!");
}
```

## Salmon

```for (x; 2; x <= 8; 2)
print(x, ", ");;
print("who do we appreciate?\n");```

## SAS

```data _null_;
do i=1 to 10 by 2;
put i;
end;
run;
```

## Sather

See Loops/For#Sather: the implementation for `for!` allows to specify a step, even though the built-in `stepto!` can be used; an example of usage could be simply:

```    i :INT;
loop
i := for!(1, 50, 2);
-- OR
-- i := 1.stepto!(50, 2);
#OUT + i + "\n";
end;```

(Print all odd numbers from 1 to 50)

## Scala

```for (i <- 2 to 8 by 2) println(i)
```

Alternatively:

```(2 to 8 by 2) foreach println
```

## Scheme

The built-in for-like form in Scheme is the do form:

```(do ((i 2 (+ i 2)))  ; list of variables, initials and steps -- you can iterate over several at once
((>= i 9))         ; exit condition
(display i)        ; body
(newline))
```

Some people prefer to use the recursive-style and more flexible _named let_ form:

```(let loop ((i 2))            ; function name, parameters and starting values
(cond ((< i 9)
(display i)
(newline)
(loop (+ i 2))))))  ; tail-recursive call, won't create a new stack frame
```

You can add to the language by wrapping the loop in a function:

```(define (for-loop start end step func)
(let loop ((i start))
(cond ((< i end)
(func i)
(loop (+ i step))))))

(for-loop 2 9 2
(lambda (i)
(display i)
(newline)))
```

... or in a macro, which allows for making the `(lambda)` implicit:

```(define-syntax for-loop
(syntax-rules ()
((for-loop index start end step body ...)
(let ((evaluated-end end) (evaluated-step step))
(let loop ((i start))
(if (< i evaluated-end)
((lambda (index) body ... (loop (+ i evaluated-step))) i)))))))

(for-loop i 2 9 2
(display i)
(newline))
```
Output:
```2
4
6
8```

## Scilab

```

.each method:

## SSEM

Implementing loops with a step other than one is precisely as easy (or as fiddly) as implementing loops with a step equal to one. This example program uses a loop to perform integer division. It should be run with the dividend in storage location 21 and the divisor in storage location 22. To show that it works, we shall ask the machine to count from 387 in steps of -5 and to halt with the accumulator showing the number of times it has done so before producing a negative result.

## Swift

This prints all odd digits:

```for i in stride(from: 1, to: 10, by: 2) {
print(i)
}
```

Alternately (removed in Swift 3):

```for var i = 1; i < 10; i += 2 {
print(i)
}
```

## Tailspin

Tailspin uses streams not loops

`1..9:3 -> !OUT::write`
Output:
```147
```

## Tcl

```for {set i 2} {\$i <= 8} {incr i 2} {
puts -nonewline "\$i, "
}
puts "enough with the cheering already!"
```

## TorqueScript

```Sub MyLoop()
For i = 2 To 8 Step 2
Debug.Print i;
Next i
Debug.Print

```

## VBScript

```buffer = ""
For i = 2 To 8 Step 2
buffer = buffer & i & " "
Next
WScript.Echo buffer

## Vedit macro language

This prints all odd digits in range 1 to 9:

```for (#1 = 1; #1 < 10; #1 += 2) {
Num_Type(#1)
}```

## Verilog

Imprime todos los números impares

```module main;
integer  i;

initial begin

for(i = 1; i <= 21; i = i + 2)  \$write(i);
\$finish ;
end
endmodule
```

## Vim Script

```for i in range(2, 10, 2)
echo i
endfor
```
Output:
```2
4
6
8
10```

## V (Vlang)

This prints all odd digits:

```for i := 1; i<10; i+=2 {
println(i)
}```

## Vorpal

```for(i = 2, i <= 8, i = i + 2){
i.print()
}```

## Wart

```for i 2 (i <= 8) (i <- i+2)
prn i```

## Wren

There is currently no direct way to incorporate a step into a for loop but we can simulate it by declaring a second variable at the start of the loop which maps the loop variable to the value we want or we can simply use a while loop instead.

```// Print odd numbers under 20.
for (i in 1..10) {
var j = 2*i - 1
System.write("%(j) ")
}

System.print("\n")

// Do the same using a 'while' loop.
var k = 1
while (k < 20) {
System.write("%(k) ")
k = k + 2
}
System.print()
```
Output:
```1 3 5 7 9 11 13 15 17 19

1 3 5 7 9 11 13 15 17 19
```

Library: Wren-trait

A further and more general approach is to use a wrapper class (such as the one in the above module) which can iterate over any sequence in a stepped fashion using Wren's iterator protocol.

```import "/trait" for Stepped

// Print odd numbers under 20.
for (i in Stepped.new(1..20, 2)) System.write("%(i) ")
System.print()

// Print first plus every third element thereafter.
for (i in Stepped.new(1..20, 3)) System.write("%(i) ")
System.print()
```
Output:
```1 3 5 7 9 11 13 15 17 19
1 4 7 10 13 16 19
```

## XPL0

The 'for' loop always steps by 1 (or -1 for 'downto'). However there is no restriction on how the control variable can be used or manipulated, thus a step by 2 can be implemented like this:

```include c:\cxpl\codes;
int I;
[for I:= 2 to 8 do
[IntOut(0, I);  Text(0, ", ");
I:= I+1;
];
Text(0, "who do we appreciate?");
]```
Output:
```2, 4, 6, 8, who do we appreciate?
```

## zkl

```foreach n in ([1..10,4]) {println(n)}
[1..10,3].pump(Console.println)```
Output:
```1
5
9

1
4
7
10
```

A few others:

```fcn loop(i=0){println(i); if(i<10)return(self.fcn(i+2))}
(0).pump(10,Console.println,fcn(n){if(n%2)return(Void.Skip); n})```

## Zig

```const std = @import("std");

pub fn main() !void {
const stdout_wr = std.io.getStdOut().writer();
var i: u8 = 1;
while (i < 10) : (i += 2)
try stdout_wr.print("{d}\n", .{i});
}
```
