variable question

what does this variable state or mean?

int lp;
does this mean that i can assign any integer to variable lp any time in the loop?
tnx

It means that "lp" is an "int" variable, and can store numbers between -32768 and + 32767 inclusive.

does this mean that i can assign any integer to variable lp any time in the loop?

Hard to say without seeing the context (code) it's used in, but from the name, it's likely that it's being used to control a loop, so assigning values to it directly as well might have unexpected/undesired effects.

So true Bill! With a name like lp it probably means 'loop'.
