To make this even more flexible:

repeat for each line tLine in tLines with [counter] tIndex [start] [{1}|x]
[step] [{1}|y]
 
end repeat

Monte,

I find that I do this quite often

local tIndex
put 1 into tIndex
repeat for each line tLine in tLines
add 1 to tIndex
end repeat

What would be very help full is the construct:

repeat for each line tLine in tLines index tIndex end repeat

This eliminates 3 lines.


+1. I like this idea because I end of doing something similar a lot. Maybe
this sounds a little more x-codish:

repeat for each line tLine in tLines with [counter] tIndex end repeat
