can somebody help me with a loop for diagonal addtion of a matrix datas. i need to add the datas of an array but in diagonal fashion say i have a 3X3 array. a[3][3]= 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 the answer should be like 0=t0; 4+1=t2 8+5+2=t3; 12+9+6+3=t4; 13+10+7=t5; 14+11=t6; 15=t7; ie in looply manners a[0][0]=t[0]; a[1][0]+a[0][1]=t[1]; a[2][0]+a[1][1]+a[0][2]=t2; a[3][0]+a[2][1]+a[1][2]+a[0][3]=t3; a[3][1]+a[2][2]+a[1][3]=t4; a[3][2]+a[2][3]=t5; a[3][3]=t6; sorry to make you work and thanks a lot in advance

for i in 0 to array_size-1 loop sum[i] := 0 for x in 0 to array_size-1 loop y := i - x if (y>=0) then sum[i] := sum[i] + a[x][y]; end if; end loop; end loop; array_size is 4 in this case. untested, but should work. It sums for all "rising" diagonals but drops fields that are not in the array. this is the only one part of the calcs (t0-t3). You need to copy this and use y := i + x as well as if (y<=array_size-1) for t3-t6 and ignore the sum that appears double(t3) for one of both.
