Simple PHP increment function

Whenever I have to output a numbered list of data I usually run the following code to achieve the required result.

$counter = 0;
// for loop that does all the required code
$counter++;
// end for

but I have discovered a lovely little function that does all this for me.

function increment(&$counter){
$counter++;
return $counter
}

now I simply call

increment($whichever_counter)

and it automatically outputs the next numeric.

Great! Simple and easy to use…..that’s the way to code.
