Hi VitaminC
In Object Pascal there is only two types of for loop:
for i:= 1 to 10 do
and
for i:= 10 to 1 do
so that if you want to step by 2 to 100 you can do this:
for i:= 1 to 50 do
  Writeln((i - 1) * 2 + 1);

Or something like this

var
  i: Integer;
begin

  i := 1;
  repeat
    DoYourCodeHere;
    Inc(i, 2);
  until i >= 100;

end;

Motaz:
for i:= 10 downto 1 do
You forgot downto. I forget it too sometimes. But Delphi will not do anything then :-)

VitaminC:
You could also use a while loop (the third type)

i := 1;
while i <= 100 do
begin
  DoYourStuff;
  Inc(i, 2);
end;

if you still want the 'for' loop you could do an unoptimized func like

for I:=0 to 100 do
  if (I mod 2) = 0 then DoYourCode;

while and repeat are preferable for this kinda thing
