I have code that needs to count a loop.
while loopEnd<loopStart count=0 loopStart=1 loopEnd=6 while loopStart < loopEnd count = count + 1 loopStart = loopStart + 5

count=0
loopStart=1
loopEnd=6
while loopStart < loopEnd
count = count + 1
loopStart = loopStart + 5
end
It looks like count gets set to zero any time this part of the code executes. count should probably be initialized earlier in the code.

If I understand you correctly, the second while loop should be above and as Christoph says it should also be initialized before. For example,
x=1;
while x==1
%initilize those values here
count=0
loopStart=1
loopEnd=6
%go into the second while loop here
while loopStart < loopEnd
%%your other conditions here
%%...
%thenn the condition for grey and then increment count and loopStart
if FL==128 && BR==128 % grey part
motors (0,0)
pause (0.5)
motors (20,20)
pause (1.5)
count = count + 1
loopStart = loopStart + 5
end
end
end
