    Default Incrementing by more than 1

    Hello how can you increment a variable in a for loop by more than 1?
    For example I want a for loop like this:
    Java Code:
    for (int i=0; i<20; i++){
    System.out.println(i);
    }
    where i is incremented by 2

    Thanks!

    i+=2, or the long form i=i+2

    One of the pitfalls of learning how to use for loops. N00bs think that i++ is the only expression that they can use.
