Hi everyone.
I have the following question.
I am using FixedPoint, something like:

FixedPoint[ (counter++;Print[counter];f[#]) & , x]

I don't want to use FixedPointList because the entire output would be
too long and it would be a waste of memory to ask Mathematica to
remember it, let alone print it. But I use the counter to know how many
times this iterates before it converges and I use the Print to keep
track of what is going on (that idea was suggested by this group).

The output looks something like:
