RE: st: foreach program
Quite so. There would be little point in -forval-
if it were not more efficient as -foreach-
is more general and could loop over anything -forval-
The key difference is that -foreach- must store
what it loops over, which could be thousands of things,
while -forval- can calculate the loop index on the fly.
