I want to loop

 [1/10] from: john:thousand-hills at: 2-Sep-2001 23:57

I have files that I would like to start the following script on line 7 of the file and loop until the lines run out. The input is done in lines, so the loop would read line 7, line 8, etc.. until the lines stop. Any suggestions? d7: pick data 7 either d7 [ print makerow d7 ][ "" ] ----------------------- John

How about data: read/lines %file.txt n: 7 while [n <= length? data][ probe data/:n n: n + 1 ]

Anton: Where and how do I alter my line of code to function in the loop? print makerow n: ? but where is it placed? //john At 08:15 PM 9/3/2001 +1000, you wrote:

If you don't need to keep track of line numbers, 'foreach would be quicker than using 'while data: skip read/lines %lines.txt 6 foreach line data [print line] Cheers, Allen K

Ah, this one looks like Rebol... Easy.. Thanks.. John At 12:44 PM 9/3/2001 +0200, you wrote:

What does makerow do? I am not really sure what you want to do. Your first description was a bit vague to me. I suggest print makerow data/:n in place of the probe below. (Once again, probe is very useful, and similar to print).

Anton.. Sorry for the confusing code, lets forget the makerow, let us ask -where would I place a command to print the line? Simply print the line -starting at line 7, until the file ends. John At 11:45 PM 9/3/2001 +1000, you wrote:

Unless by "print" you mean something other than the usual "send text to console window", then... You really should read your mail more carefully. :) Review my previous email below. Just to explain a bit more: data/:n references the nth item in the data series. The colon : before n means "get the value of n" The slash denotes a path. When an integer is supplied it means to pick the item at the index of that integer.

Anton: Thanks. After reading more carefully (thanks for the advice) ;?) The code worked like this: data: read/lines %ROUTE.txt data: skip data 6 foreach line data [print makerow line] and since the first line was previously declared, like this.. data: skip data 6 foreach line data [print makerow line] Makerow: is a script that places data in a row with formatting and HTML code as needed.
