To set the initial value. Quantities being altered in iterative processing (as might happen in a Fortran ‘‘DO loop’’) may require a starting value assigned them by an ‘‘initializing’’ statement before the loop is executed (as in Figure F-14). Some systems assume initial values of zero and so do not require initializing statements unless this condition is not acceptable.
