Question Trying to create a range of values in openFoam c file

Hi all,

I'm trying to do something very simple, but am not sure how to go about it. Essentially, here's what I need to do:
first create a range of values
then do a for loop over that range.
In matlab, it would look something like this:

x1 = 1; %Start
x2 = 3; %end
n = 5; %number of steps
y = linspace(x1,x2,n);  % creates the range between z1 and x2 in n steps
for i = y
In OF (in the context of what I need to do) I assume it would look something like:
tmp = 0;
x1 = 1; //Start
x2 = 3; //end
n = 5; //number of steps
y = RANGE(x1,x2,n); // pseudocode for range  <-- What goes here to create the range??
for (int i = 0; i < n; i ++){
      tmp = y[i]
      // do stuff with tmp val here
I know this is a very basic question, but as someone still learning c++ and oF I can't figure it out!

Thanks for any help!
