Thanks to all.
My few lines were to much like C++ programming. I used i++ etc. because then in one pass one can scan the list for the desired result. From the examples I learned that in Mathematica programming is different. 
Some solutions/reactions require two passes of the list. But I observed that Mathematica has very efficient short procedures. To rely on them is better, I believe now, than to make my own version of these given procedures. 
I also solved the tag question. My mistake was that I made first a list called mm and later a function (mm[mDiff}:= etc.). This gave the tag problem. Mathematica does not use types. I think it can be done with up values, but I am just starting with Mathematica.
wit friendly greetings,
