"For each integer A/B" - what does that mean and how does it work?

It represents an Integer. It is a loop action that runs through the specified number of loops. So if you are doing several actions with sequential numbers, you can use this action to make it easier. Example:

Trigger:
  • For Each Integer A (1 to 10) do Actions -
    • Loop - Actions
      • Set New_Integer = (Integer A)


That will set a new integer variable 10 times. It is the exact same thing as doing this:

Trigger:
  • Actions
    • Set New_Integer = 1
    • Set New_Integer = 2
    • Set New_Integer = 3
    • ...
    • Set New_Integer = 10


NOTE:
The only the thing to remember is that (Integer A) and (Integer B) are global variables, which means that if you use them several times in the same trigger, make sure they do not overlap or they will overwrite each other's data. That's what (Integer B) is for: You can use it inside an (Integer A) loop. Example:

Trigger:
  • For each Integer A (1 to 10) do Actions -
    • Loop - Actions
      • Set New_Integer = (Integer A)
      • For each Integer B (11 to 20) do Actions -
        • Loop - Actions
          • Set Brand_New_Integer = (Integer B)


With that you have 2 variables, one that is set ten times from 1 to 10, and the second is also set 10 times, from 11 to 20. Of course that would be completely useless, but its just an example.

They are especially useful when using arrays, because you can use one loop action to set multiple variables with an array.

There isn't a point, it was just an example of how to use the (Integer A) function. They are useful when dealing with arrays, where you access certain integers that have data, such as Player Numbers, Unit Groups, etc.

He means "What's the point of having integer A/B"

Well it makes it easier to do loops with specifications.

Example:
Player (Integer A)

If you use (For each Integer A from 1 to 12) the Editor will carry out the actions using:
Player (1), Player (2), Player (3), ..... Player (12).

Look for a GUI Mass Impale. It's a great example of how to use integer A/B loops.

As a quick example that states almost exactly what temmerbob and keychup said:

For each (Integer A) from 1 to 12
Loop
Player - Set property - Set gold for Player(Integer A) to X

Trigger:
  • CreateRandom
    • Events
      • Player - Player 1 (Red) skips a cinematic sequence
    • Conditions
    • Actions
      • Set Count = 5
      • For each (Integer A) from 0 to 5, do (Actions)
        • Loop - Actions
          • Set Index[(Integer A)] = (Integer A)
      • For each (Integer B) from 0 to 1, do (Actions)
        • Loop - Actions
          • Set RandomInt = (Random integer number between 0 and Count)
          • Set Point = (Center of Region[Index[RandomInt]])
          • Special Effect - Create a special effect at Point using Abilities\Spells\Human\MarkOfChaos\MarkOfChaosTarget.mdl
          • Special Effect - Destroy (Last created special effect)
          • Custom script: call RemoveLocation(udg_Point)
          • Set Index[RandomInt] = Count
          • Set Count = (Count - 1)


This is script by Dinowc. Integer B is from 0 to 1, any1 know what that means? :)

The (Integer B) from 0 to 1 means that the actions within the loop are going to run twice, the first time with Integer B having a value of 0 and the second time with Integer B having a value of 1. Since Integer B isn't used within the loop, it's simply running the set of actions twice.

Is it the same as
Code:
from 1 to 2
or 
from 5 to 6
?

"I will stand, or I will fall. I will not sit."
They would essentially be the same, they all cause the actions in the loop to be run twice. The only difference would be the value of the Integer B loop within the variable.

    You would probably have to take a loan to get the Rice cert it is like 14l

    I was hoping you were going to say you wanted to be a cook and wished to open up a Food Truck there are so many opportunities for that here
  • The Helper The Helper:
    you can only open the bar if you sell food and a food truck in the parking lot counts
  • The Helper The Helper:
    here in houston
  • The Helper The Helper:
    most bars are struggling to build food prep and even some I know are doing there own food trucks
  • The Helper The Helper:
    but yeah man you should come to Houston there is so much more opportunity here than San Antonio. Just look at all the homeless people on the Riverwalk and downtown there you cannot even walk down the street without getting mobbed them
  • The Helper The Helper:
    check out this place apparently it is the best roommate site out there roommates.com lol
  • Varine Varine:
    The homeless people reminded me of New York
  • Varine Varine:
    I'll check it out, my lease expires in like a few months so I need to figure something out.
  • Varine Varine:
    I tried to open a food truck in Sandpoint a few years ago but the city said no, then like two years later they passed new laws to encourage it and gave them all fucking tax breaks and shit. And at that point I didn't have enough money to go buy one so I was way too late to the game once other cities realized they could just bring their existing truck there, or sell their brick and mortar.
  • Varine Varine:
    I do like food trucks though, they're way more fun than restaurants and usually I also get some of that tip money there.
  • Varine Varine:
    Restaurants are really hard if you don't have a back up source of income to fund them sometimes, in my experience most owners either got really really lucky, had existing money that allowed them to buy an already successful one, or they have family money to fall back on for loans. It's few and far between to see very inspiring success stories where the person actually got it through hard work and perseverance. I thought about opening one lots and I always just end up not thinking it'll work. I would much rather just find someone that has that money and go work for them
  • The Helper The Helper:
    i am not talking about opening a brick and mortar I am talking about food trucks though I have seen some brick and mortar mexican places open up during covid that are doing good because there food is awesome!
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Food trucks are killing out here because Bars cannot open unless they sell food and the governor ok'd the use of a food truck in front as serving food
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Just not enough food trucks
  • The Helper The Helper:
    a buddy of mine just opened up a food truck and he is killing it but he is a great cook and has awesome food right in the middle of the pandemic too food trucks are immune to pandemic because they are take out in Texas you will always be able to get take out or delivery
  • The Helper The Helper:
    He is in the different food facebook groups in houston and posts videos of him making his food
  • The Helper The Helper:
    he is killing it
  • jonas jonas:
    @Varine with the restaurants, there surely is a lot of luck and hard work but most restaurants fail because they suck. Flair isn't right, economics not well thought through, food is mediocre or sucks, location is bad, etc. If you're thinking about opening one, make sure you're looking at the stories of those that would be playing at your level, don't let your hopes be dragged down by all the subpar restaurants out there.
  • jonas jonas:
    I'm a bit worried about the future of data science, there's an influx of incompetent people hired by incompetent managers, that can't last. But I'm sure smart data scientists will always be useful and hireable. Same as smart security people.
  • jonas jonas:
    My sister in law worked in a vegan food truck, the owners were also making a killing, added several trucks and opened two restaurants over 5 years
  • Ghan Ghan:
    The CompTIA stuff is pretty much crap unfortunately. The places that ask for those low-level certs aren't likely places you want to work. For IT you really want a degree, but in the meantime you need to figure out some way to learn the skills. Cybersecurity is really hot right now so competition is fierce.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    I realized I don't have anything much to say, other than "Good luck!". Compared to other places, I'm just very lucky we didn't have a lot of surges of cases coming in.

    My daughter just got back from school at Georgetown TX, outside of Austin and said there were 100 cases in the last week but she also said nobody was wearing a mask anywhere so people mask up and stay safe!
