ALF11 — Traditional for-statement not supported by Alf?

  • Key: ALF11-21
  • Legacy Issue Number: 16605
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: IBM ( Mattias Mohlin)
  • Summary:

    When we read chapter 9.12 we conclude that the traditional for-statement of languages such as C/C++ and Java, is not supported by Alf. Only for-statements that iterate based on collections are supported now.
    We think the traditional for-statement with loop variable initialization, termination condition and iteration step should be supported. For example
    for (Integer i = 0; i < x; i++)

    { ... }

    The RTF agrees that this is an issue worth considering, but, due to lack of time, decided to defer its resolution to a future RTF working on this specification.
