Not Sure I Understand

Hi guys

Looking at the teachers notes for For loops.

is i += 1 the same as i++ or do they have different uses?

Thanks

Paul

Its the same in this example but += means var = var + something and ++ means var = var + 1

I understand now. Never come across ++ before.

Thanks for the quick reply :)
