When operators of identical order are written in line (such as 3*5/2), the operations are carried out from left to right. 1 Use Brackets to Control the Order of Operation It is often necessary to control the precise order in which terms in an expression are evaluated.

They are arranged in rows and columns. Each value in the table is identified by its row and column index. The value in the 3rd row and 6th column has the index [3][6]. If an array has only a single column, it may be referred to as a vector. In this context, a vector is a simple list of values. Each value is referenced by a single index. The first value stored in a vector is referred to by the index [1], the second by the index [2], and so on. Within a GDL script, you can define an array variable with either one or two dimensions using the dim command.

Counter variables used in loops are often named i, j or k, or are prefixed with one of these characters. Whenever you see such a variable your first assumption should be that it is a counter variable. ). Dynamic hotspots must be given a unique index, so I use an integer variable iHotspot as a counter for this purpose. When we look at primitive elements, we will see that counters can be used to keep track of the vertices, edges and polygons. The prefix n is used to indicate the total number of items.
