Subject RE: Looping number of times

That is why I said in my response:

"I either could not get the ones I found working, or they were just too complicated"

If you take the while task I sent source code for, and then combine that with antelope tasks
to do math operations, you can write a for loop on an index with:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<project name="loop" xmlns:bt="antlib:mytasks" xmlns:at="antlib:ise.antelope.tasks">
	<target name="test">
		<property name="index" value="1"/>
		<bt:while property="index" unless="11">
            <echo message="index: ${index}"/>
            <at:math result="index" operand1="${index}" operation="+" operand2="1" datatype="int"/>

Running this test, gives you:

     [echo] index: 1
     [echo] index: 2
     [echo] index: 3
     [echo] index: 4
     [echo] index: 5
     [echo] index: 6
     [echo] index: 7
     [echo] index: 8
     [echo] index: 9
     [echo] index: 10
