What do you mean by « perfectly formed » ? What can this mean ?

At five outlets, it's the most complex one I've ever seen.

It also has an argument order that I've never seen before : traditionally 
one would write FOR x=0 TO 99 STEP 3 or for(x=0;x<=99;x+=3) or perhaps 
0:3:99 in some other languages, but [fcount 3 0 99] is another occasion to 
learn one of the 6 possible argument orders for 3 arguments (the 3 other 
ones put the start value after the end value).
