Example of a for loop in Ocaml

Explanation

In the above code, we use the for loop to print all the numbers from 1-10.

  • Line 1: We start the for loop and define the range for the loop i = 1 to 10. The loop stops once i reaches 10. After the do keyword, we put the code block we want to execute while the loop is running.
  • Line 2: We use the done keyword to stop the for loop.
