Why is my for loop not stopping? I have tried both break and end and thought it would end if I added an increment but it does not.
string = "HOWDY";
count = 0;
for count = 1:strlength(string)
count = count + 1

string = "HOWDY";
c = 0;
for count = 1:strlength(string)
c = c + 1;%should never mess with the loop variable inside the loop
