I am trying to get a loop structure using
While to repeatedly evaluate another cell referred to in its body (using a cell tag).
"this is the while construct"; x = 2; y = 5; While[x < y, NotebookLocate["code"]; FrontEndTokenExecute["EvaluateCells"]; x y ]
and this is the cell called "code"
"this cell contains the code i want to run"; x = x + 0.1; y = y - 0.1;
My code seems to enter an endless loop.
What I expected was when the two numbers, x and y, became equal, the loop would stop. What am I doing wrong?
