The "for" loop shown here has 4 clauses in the parentheses, which causes a syntax error. The correct syntax has 3 clauses: initialization, condition, and increment. For more details see the MDN page on For.

Also, the clauses are separated (not terminated) by semicolons, so there would be no more than two of them.
