    How to animate jpgs using setInterval()

    Hello,
    My question is about creating an animation using the setInterval function.

    I want to load 5 jpgs in the head section. I then want to call them - one second apart - using the setInterval function in the body section.

    Below is a simple example of what I'm attempting to do. Can someone please correct my code? Or tell me what I'm doing wrong?

    Thanks so much!

    HTML Code:
      <head>
        <script type="text/javascript">
    
          var c = 1;
    
          /* Preloading images */
          var image1 = new Image();
          image1.src = "a1.jpg";
          var image2 = new Image();
          image2.src = "a2.jpg";
          var image3 = new Image();
          image3.src = "a3.jpg";
          var image4 = new Image();
          image4.src = "a4.jpg";
          var image5 = new Image();
          image5.src = "a5.jpg";
    
          function disp_img(w)
          {
          if (c == 6)
          {
          c = 1;
          }
       
          var img_src = "a" + c + ".jpg";
          document.ani.src = img_src;
          c++;
    
        </script>
      </head>
      
      <body>
        <script type="text/javascript">
    
          setInterval("disp_img(c)", 1000);
      
        </script>
      </body>

    tirna,
    Thank you so much! That is EXACTLY what i was looking to do.

    Not only is it usable, but the code you provided is very clear. I learned a lot just from going through each line.

    Thanks again!
