Hi

I have a for loop performing pretty strangely

//MAX_CHANNELS = 1024

void CNewRunView::Accumulate(const double dblSpectra[], double dblAccum[])
{
      CString s;

      long l;

      for(l = MAX_CHANNELS; l > 0; l--);    //for(l = 0; l < MAX_CHANNELS; l++) also tried this for loop declaration
      {
            s.Format("\nAccum[%d] = %5.2f Spectra[%d] = %5.2f", l, dblAccum[l], l, dblSpectra[l]);
            TRACE(s);
            dblAccum[l] += dblSpectra[l];

            s.Format(" New Accum[%d] = %6.2f", l, dblAccum[l]);

            TRACE(s);
      }
}

When I debug the application if l = MAX_CHANNELS then l = 0 first time in the loop and it exits after one itteration.

if l = 0 then l = MAX_CHANNELS first time in the loop and then we exit.

Seriously confused on this one


Can anyone explain whats going on??


Thanks in advance
