We have 3 tags related to "each" on stackoverflow:

  • - This is used for the jQuery each function
  • - This is also used for the jQuery .each function
  • - Also refering to the jQuery .each function

I think that they all need to be changed. First of all, we need to remove the tag, because that not a great name for it and causes to much indistinctness.
Secondly, the tag needs to be more generic. If you look at the questions tagged with it, you can already see that people are using this for ruby, sass, ect. each loops instead of the specific jQuery each function. Questions which are tagged with the tag and talk about the jQuery.each function should be retagged with the tag.

Moreover, an each loop is called a for loop in some languages. I think the and don't differ and should by a synonyms.

Well, there's a for loop and a foreach loop, and likely what happens there is they add a space so that both the for and each tags get added, rather than the appropriate foreach tag. The each tag needs to be gone in the end. –  animuson Mar 1 '13 at 2:23
I don't think it should be a tag at all. Most problems tagged each are not with how each works but about using it. It does not help narrow down the problem at all. –  Benjamin Gruenbaum Mar 1 '13 at 2:54
More tag chaos: there is also a tag called for-in-loop which is just an equivalent of a foreach loop. And a do-loop tag which is an equivalent of a while loop. –  Wouter J Mar 1 '13 at 10:31
