Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]

This template is used to produce a simple loop. It is based on Module:String, and there is no limit to the number of iterations it can perform.

Usage

{{loop|times to repeat|string}}

If string contains an equals sign, you must put "|2=string" instead of "|string".

Examples

  • {{loop|4|n}}
nnnn


  • {{loop|25|test}}
testtesttesttesttesttesttesttesttesttesttesttesttesttesttesttesttesttesttesttesttesttesttesttesttest


  • {{#expr:2{{loop|50|*2}}}}
2.2517998136852E+15


When the string being replicated includes "=", we have to precede the second parameter with "2=", or use {{}}.

  • {{loop|9|2==}}
=========

or:

  • {{loop|9|{{=}}}}
=========


  • {{loop|3|{{CURRENTYEAR}}}}

* If string contains an equals sign, you must put '|2=string' instead of '|string'.
