Experts,

I need these two pieces of ASP converted from ASP to PHP; should be pretty simple, but I'm not very good with both languages.

Lyell
<%

Dim String1

String1 = ""

For i = 1 to var

String1 = String1 & "../"

Next

%>
 

<%=String1%>

<?PHP
//<%
//Dim String1
//String1 = ""
$string1 = ''';

//For i = 1 to var
for (i=0; i<= $var; i++) {

    //String1 = String1 & "../"
    $string = $string . "../";

//Next
//%>
}

//<%=String1%>
echo $string1
?>

actually it would be like this
?PHP

//<%

//Dim String1

//String1 = ""

$string1 = "";
 

//For i = 1 to var

for (i=1; i<= $var; i++) {
 

    //String1 = String1 & "../"

    $string .= "../";
 

//Next

//%>

}
 

//<%=String1%>

echo $string1;

?>

Either is correct. I intentionally chose not to use .= to keep it closer to ASP and be less confusing.

yeah, but
this
//For i = 1 to var
for (i=0; i<= $var; i++) {
vs
//For i = 1 to var
for ($i=1;$ i<= $var; $i++) {

and this
echo $string1;
you forgot the ; at the end

<?PHP

//<%

//Dim String1

//String1 = ""

$string1 = "";

 

//For i = 1 to var

for ($i=1; $i<= $var; $i++) {

 

    //String1 = String1 & "../"

    $string .= "../";

 

//Next

//%>

}

 

//<%=String1%>

echo $string1;

?>

php code without any comments:
<?

$string1="";

for($i=1; $i<=$var; $i++)

{

$string1 = $string1."../";

} 
 

echo $string1;

?>
