in reply to for loop syntax difference

for $i (1..10) creates a list with ten elements and iterates of that.
for($i=0;$i<10;$i++) initializes $i with the value 0, then for every iteration of the loop it checks $i and increments if the check returns true or ends the loop.

    No, it doesn't. It's optimised into a counting loop. It increments the loop counter every pass rather than creating a list.
