Subject: [R] for loop help

Hi,

I am trying to find a solution in R for the following C++ code that allows
one to skip ahead in the loop:

for (x = 0; x <= 13; x++){
 x=12;
 cout << "Hello World";

}

Note that "Hello World" was printed only twice using this C++ loop. I tried to do the same in R:

for(i in 1:13){
 i=12
 print("Hello World")
}
It doesn't work as I expected, i.e., this R loop prints "Hello World" 13 times.

Does anyone know how to do it in R?

Thanks,

-- 
Tom
