In this case, you set up variable X and set it to zero: int x=0; You then set a condition to decide how many times the code in the loop will execute: x<3; In this case, the code will loop if x is smaller than (<) 3. The code within a for loop will always execute once no matter what the condition is set to. 33 CHAPTER 2 ■ LIGHT 'EM UP The < symbol is what is known as a comparison operator. They are used to make decisions within your code and to compare two values. = (not equal to) < (less than) > (greater than) <= (less than or equal to) >= (greater than or equal to) In your code, you are comparing x with the value of 3 to see if it is smaller than 3.

These have several legs coming out of them. An RGB LED has a red, green, and blue (hence RGB) LED in one package. This LED has four legs; one will be a common anode or cathode (common to all three LEDs) and other legs will go to the anode or cathode of an individual LED. By adjusting the brightness values of the R, G and B channels of the RGB LED, you can get any color you want (the same effect can be obtained if you used three separate red, green and blue LEDs). Now that you know how the components function and how the code in this project works, let’s try something a bit more interesting.
