Sequential For

Definition#

Unlike For in a Process, this operation works like a for loop from languages like C. First you declare a variable, than you have a condition to stay in the loop and than you can increase or decrease the variable. (Can be called SeqFor too)

Examples#

Thread {     For (VARIABLE counter : INTEGER := 0; counter < 8; counter := counter + 1)     {         LED(counter) <= '1';         Wait(1000);     }}

In this example, counter is always counted form 0 to 7. The counter'th position of the LED vector is set high and between the loops there is a delay of 1000 clock cycles.
