Increment variable every 5 iterations of for loop?

If you won’t want to have a variable that gets incremented every 5th iteration, so you need to check if the index is a multiple of 5:

var foo = 0;

for (var i; i < someLength; ++i) {

This uses the modulus operator to get the remainder of i / 5. If it’s 0, then we know the index is a multiple of 5.
