Hmm…. what about:

repeat for each line tLine in line 5 to -1 of tLines with counter tCounter starting from 5

BTW if we ever do this could the following be ordered if the array is a 1..N sequence… I’m not really sure if repeat for each element is ordered in any way currently.

repeat for each element tElement in tArray with counter tCounter

I guess we could have more explicit syntax here which might be more flexible too

repeat for each element tElement and key tKey in tArray ordered numeric ascending

Cheers
