Infinite Loop in my code.

If you saw my earlier post, we have to navigate a 10x10 array using 1's as a path. When a 1 is selected, we have to change the current position to -1 so that way we don't keep retracing our steps. When I run the program, it keeps saying STEPPED TO [2,3] over and over again. Can someone please identify where my infinite loop is? I can't seem to find it.

After each step, you don't change coordinates, why?

I think it is a root of the issue.

So I changed it to read

The changes in X and Y are reflected through the rest of the code, but I am still getting an infinite loop when attempting to move diagonally. It keeps jumping back and forth between spaces.
I agree. Here's the link:
