Still, I'm having trouble seeing why turning a standard for loop into a statement modifier cuts down on the memory usage.

I didn't suggest it did.

Only that it reduced the memory requirement compared to the map variant; and sourcecode/mindspace compared to the standard for loop.

    Ah, my misunderstanding, I see that you didn't suggest what I was assuming. I agree; the statement modifier form uses less mindspace for me too.

[Corion]: Hi marto!
[Corion]: I hope all is well marto! ;) My godson had a surprise visit to the hospital yesterday because he fell and had cut his skin besides his eye, but everything was glued together again and all is well
[marto]: good grief, that's not fun, glad to hear all is as well as could be :)
[Corion]: marto: Yeah - their mother picked all three of them up at the kindergarden to then go to the hospital, and all three of them were well behaved, and all also were quite obedient when they came home, so they recognized the situation
