Repeating Code

Does anyone know how to make sections of code repeat themselves? Or do you just have to keep re-writing the section of code over and over and over and over and over…?

make a while loop and put the repeating stuff in it (while==1) Or (1==1)

or if you want to repeat a certain number of times

int repeatThisNumberOfTimes = 5; //this is how many times to repeat

for (int i = 0; i < repeatThisNumberOfTimes; i++){
//code here

in this case the best resource would be to read the easyC help files (or MPLAB guide) on “for” and “while” loops

thanks guys that helped a lot. :smiley:

You can also create user functions which I’m guessing is what you really want to do.

Say I want to have the robot back up and turn left every once in a while. So I right click on functions, click “create new function”. Now in that I place the back up and turn left blocks. Now every time I want the robot to back up and turn left I place that “block” or function into the code.
