PHP For Loop

A for loop statement is a repetition of loop and it allows to efficiently write a loop that needs to be executed a certain number of times. For loops are useful in case of multi-dimensional arrays.

There are 3 statements at the start of the for loop viz. 1. Defining the incrementer 2. Setting the condition and 3. Incrementing the incrementer


for (initialization counter; condition counter; increment counter) {
    //code to be executed;

PHP For Loop Example

for ($x = 1; $x <= 5; $x++) {
    echo $x;

This will produce following result

1 2 3 4 5
