### Factorial for integers (imperative)

The code :

Code: Select all
`: fact { | i | 1 swap loop: i [ i * ] }`

- A local variable, i, is declared : it is needed for the loop.
- Then #fact pushes 1 on the stack and swap it with the integer on top of the stack.
- This integer is used by #loop: so the loop will run from i = 1 to i = this integer.
- Into the loop, i is pushed, then multiplicated by the top of the stack.
- At the end, fact is calculated on the top of the stack.
