Some History Of I, J, And K
I learned a little bit of geek history today. A lot of us have used the variable I (or i rather) in our loops, and sometimes for nested loops we would use j and then k. Do you know where that started?
Apparently it started in FORTRAN. The variables i, j, and k were to be only used for integer type variables. I am sure there is more to it than that but a quick search gave two different sources that confirm it.
I know this is nothing ground breaking or anything, I just thought it was something neat.
