Re: loop macro

Re Maryland loop macro: one thing is still unclear to me:
are the iteration variables always stepped in parallel (a
la DO)? Is there any way to have it done sequentially
(DO*)? One reason for linking words in ZetaLoop is to
distinguish these cases.
Always via DO -- they are init'd in parallel; you can use LET to
bind other variables which may be ref'd. Of course, on the iteration
steps, the variables are updated in sequence. The Maryland macro
always expands to a DO with, possibly, one or more LET's around it.
I don't really remember needing to use a DO* type binding of
iteration variables. I guess I would use a LET to bind some common
value and use it in the init part of the iteration values.
