I've been trying to understand just how nested for loops work , so I thought i'd devise a simple one of my own, as in the code below:-
The thing is, I think the comments i've inserted next to the loops are indicative of their function , but, for example, how can I change this code, so that the word 'two', appears twice, i.e., like one one two two I suppose this all stems from my misunderstanding of the whole concept, right?

John Bonham was stronger, but Keith Moon was faster.
Notice that Marilyn 'unnested' the inner-most for loop to get 'two' to print twice in a row. Think of the nested loops as wheels on an odometer. The outer loop is the most significant number (leftmost), and the inner-most loop is the least significant (in this case the tenths of a mile). The farther right the digit, the more often it spins before the leftmost (outer) loops will increment.
Spot false dilemmas now, ask me how!

Seriously? That's what you're going with? I prefer this tiny ad:
