Loops

for loop

In Hades, there is no C-style count-controlled loop, but only a foreach loop which iterates over an array.

Example

with math fixed from std:math
with console from std:io
for(var i int in range(0,10) /*'range' returns an array with the number 0 to 10*/)
console.out(i)
end
let fruits string[] = {"Apple", "Banana", "Mango", "Kiwi"}
for(var fruit in fruits)
console.out("{} is very healthy".format(fruit))
end
If you don't need a variable, you can use an underscore instead of naming a variable or variable declaration.
for(_ in range(0,10))
console.out("")
end
Range also has a shorthand: ...

Example

1..5 //returns [1,2,3,4,5]
1|..5 //returns [2,3,4,5]
1|..|5 //returns [2,3,4]
"a".."Z" //returns ["a", "b"..."X", "Y", "Z"]

while loop

The while loop pretty much works like you'd expect. It loops as long as a given condition evaluates to true.

Example

with console from std:io
var c = 0
while(c not 10)
console.out("c is {}".format(c))
end

stop and skip statements

The stop statement stops a loop.

Example

with console from std:io
var c = 0
while(true)
if(c == 10)
stop
end
console.out("c is {}".format(c))
c++
end
The skip statement skips over the current state of a loop. In while loops, this just skips execution of the code after the skip statement. In a for loop, this statement also skips to the next value of an array.

Example

with console from std:io
var c = 0
while(c not 10)
if(c not 5)
c++
skip
end
console.out("c is 5")
c++
end
// Output: c is 5
var fruits = {"Apple", "Banana", "Mango", "Kiwi"}
for(var fruit in fruits)
if(fruit == "Banana")
skip
end
console.out(fruit)
end
/*
Output:
Apple
Mango
Kiwi
*/
