Nesting loops ???

Can someone give me a hint on nesting the loops please. If you tell me it can't be done - fine as well, I just need to know if there is a function for that. In the help pages and examples there is
{$ foreach x in (folder "TopLevel") $}
  {$ next $}

and also

{$ foreach x in (all) $}
  {$ next $}

but I can't seem to combine them into this:

{$ foreach x in (folder "TopLevel") $}
    {$foreach y in folder (all) $}
    {$ next $}
{$ next $}

so I only get contents of all folders inside the "TopLevel" folder, but not anything from other folders on the same level as TopLevel is... Any hints?


PS: If emailing me please replace COLD by HOT !

No nesting loops so far.

If you are ambitious, Adriaane has done some really cool things with Java script.  See the first item in ".cty downloads" here.

Currently the only ways I know of are:
* use a script (javascript/php/asp) to filter
* use keywords
* use complex conditionals
foreach x in (or (or (folder "top")  (folder "top/sub1") )(folder "top/sub2) )

This sounds like a job for conditions to me too. (and (folder "Topblah") (all) )

But that's the same as (all) anyway...
