Re: Do loop is faulty


Dumb Founded,

Why do you keep complaining that Mathematica does not work when you feed 
it mangled syntax? Would a C compiler produce anything useful if you fed 
it Fortran, or half-Fortran-half-C?

Perhaps you should start with some working code - say from the help 
files - and gradually modify it.

In particular, please note that b[i] calls a function with the name b, 
b[[i]] accesses a 1-dimensional array stored in b, but only if you have 
already set up the variable b to be an array:

b=Array[0&,10];

b[[5]]=3;

b

{0, 0, 0, 0, 3, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0}
