# MATLAB: A question about the for loop index

for loopMATLAB

Hello,
I would like to have a for loop with its index k ranging from e.g. 8 to 1 such that in the first iteration k=8, in the second iteration k=4, in the 3rd iteration k=2, and in the forth iteration k=1. I would appreciate your help. Thanks.

•    for k=2.^(3:-1:0)     ....   end
